I am using W2000. Makes since why it doesn't work if I am disconnected, but why does it still not work even though I have reconnected to the network? I have a few mapped connections which should create this loopback, but it still doesn't work. Is there something I need to reset now that I have reconnected to the Network? Thanks for the help! -----Original Message----- From: Bo Berglund [mailto:Bo.Berglund at system3r.se] Sent: Tuesday, September 17, 2002 9:51 AM To: 'np'; cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Subject: RE: [cvsnt] named pipe error 6 You are running W2000 or XP? These systems are designed to drop the TCP/IP protocol altogether if the network cable is disconnected. So if this happens you can no longer run programs that use TCP/IP for communications, not even locally on your own PC! One way around this problem is to add the Microsoft Loopback adapter to your PC. This is a 'software network card', which cannot get its cable disconnected. With this installed the TCP/IP protocol stays loaded and all depending functions work. Named pipe indicates you are using :ntserver: protocol. If so you can check what happens if you map a drive letter to a share on your own PC (set to reconnect at logon). While you have this map there is a named pipe connected (like a loopback) and you can probably work. /Bo -----Original Message----- From: np [mailto:nathan.paris at laurelhillgis.com] Sent: den 17 september 2002 17:18 To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Subject: [cvsnt] named pipe error 6 I installed cvsnt about a month ago and havent had any problems, until yesterday. All of a sudden when I try to do anything (edit, commit...) I get the following error: Couldn't connect to <computername>, named pipe error 6 The computer name is the same machine that I am running on. This believe this happened after I disconnected from the network and tried using CVS at home. I have reconnected with the network as well as restarted cvsnt, but still have the problem. Any ideas?
