Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

Repositories on network drives are not supported by CVSNT out of the
box. You need to tweak the installation quite a bit to succeed with
that, and even so you will be compromising the security of the
repository. The reason is that CVSNT needs tight control of the
repository files when performing cvs command execution and that is
simply not possible using a network drive.

Please also note that the CVSNT service runs on the local SYSTEM
account which *does not* have any permissions outside the local
machine! It cannot access network resources for example.
