Hi all

CVSNT Server had been set up on Win2k prof this way
1) CVSROOT = :ntserver:c:/cvs
2) HOME = c:/
3) TEMP=c:\winnt\temp
4) cvsservice -i c:\cvs
5) net start cvs
6) cvs init

And the contol panel applet shows that the server is running.

I then downloaded winCVS 1.3 beta and i set the CVSROOT on the client
machine to :ntserver:apaudit5_009:c:\cvs
When I use cvs co -c to get a list of modules I get the following error

cvs checkout: Hostname required
cvs checkout: bad CVSROOT: :ntserver:APAUDIT5_009:c:\cvs
cvs [checkout aborted]: Bad CVSROOT.

Can somebody help me in this regard as this is my first time trying to set
up CVS.

Thanks in advance
