I had a similar problem where WinCVS 184.108.40.206 beta 6 showed this error: cvs checkout CVSROOT (in directory C:\) cvs [checkout aborted]: unrecognized auth response from servername: cvs [authserver aborted]: bad auth protocol start: BEGIN NTSERVER And the server reported this from the command line: C:\>cvs -d :ntserver:servername:d:/cvs co CVSROOT cvs [checkout aborted]: the :ntserver: access method is not supported by this port of CVS As Boyd Meier suggested on 5/13/2002, the problem was related to having multiple versions of cvs on the server, and the ntserver_protocol.dll was actually missing. The resolution was to uninstall CVSNT, clean up the PATH, and reinstall CVSNT. --Dave -----Original Message----- From: tmh at nothing-on.tv [mailto:tmh at nothing-on.tv] Sent: Tuesday, May 28, 2002 5:55 AM To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Subject: Re: [Cvsnt] CVS NT + Windows XP On Tue, 28 May 2002 08:34:43 +0000 (UTC), Maciej Sinilo <msinilo at kki.net.pl> wrote: >Hello, > >I'm trying to install CVS NT on WinXP based server (using ntserver). >Everything goes fine to the point when I tried to perform some action >from client machine.
