You haven't completed the server setup then. Before that is done no
client access is possible.
Go to the CVSNT applet in Control Panel, switch to the Repositories
tab and Add a repository there (named Test). Let CVSNT initialize the
repository when it asks, this is necessary in order to get the system
working. Now there should be a directory c:\cvsrepo\Test with a subdir
CVSROOT inside.
And now you should be able to connect since you are on the same
machine as the server so there will not be any authentication issues.
