The connect root is wrong:
pserver needs a middle part as user at server like
:pserver:mike at cobra:c:/cvsrepo/pc

And the directory nesting of repositories is OK, just give a valid
repository root here (don't confuse this with the module path, that
is coming later).
A valid reposttory directory is one that has a properly initialized
/CVSROOT subdirectory and that CVSNT is set up to serve in the registry.

I have the same problem when trying to access a repository located on a NT
platform. The platform from which i try to connect is a Unix one.

For me the following command succeed:
cvs -d :pserver:mw_rw:/d//cvsrr login
where d:\cvsrr is my repository path.

Before this i have try different solutions as
cvs -d :pserver:log_name:@mw_rw:/d//cvsrr login

but none works.
I don't know also how could be named in this command_line a repository located
more deeper, for example one located on d:\cvsrr\repository.
I tried
cvs -d :pserver:mw_rw:/d//cvsrr/repository login
it didn't work, then
cvs -d :pserver:mw_rw:/d//cvsrr\\repository login
it didn't work too.

Any suggestion will be welcomed.
