Hello everybody,

I am using - shame on me - Windows.NET Server (build 3663, should be beta 1)
to masquerade my home network from the Internet. I am forwarding ports 2401
and 2402 to my CVS server, and everything worked fine with the

Now I am about to switch to the :sspi: or :ssh:-protocol and I configured
everything so cvs access works fine within my internal network (both :sspi:
and :ssh:).

When I try to access via :ssh: from the outside (I tried 2 different
locations), I get the following error message:

C:\projects>cvs -d :ssh:<user>@<host>:/cvsroot login
Logging in to :ssh:<user>@<host>:2401/cvsroot
CVS password: ***
cvs [login aborted]: Error connecting to ssh server: Unknown error -40

What does this error mean?

Do I need to forward another port?
