How exactly did you create it?
You should specify it via the CVSNT control panel applet and confirm when
asked to initialise it.

Which one? Current is WinCvs 1.3.11.

What do you mean "create a repository"? You only create repositories on the
server. On the client you /create/ "sandboxes" by checking out modules from
the server. Is that what you meant? If so, you should be aware that in order
to checkout modules you have to import/add them first. The only module that
already exists in a freshly created/initialised repository is the CVSROOT
module, which contains the administrative/config files.

What are those slashes in the host address? There shouldn't be any.

This is normal. :ntserver: doesn't require a password.

Does the CVSNT control panel applet on the server list your repository on
the Repositories tab? If not, add it, restart the service and you should be
fine. Otherwise I'll have to pass this issue on for the moment...

Hope this helps.
