Sounds like you either don't have permissions to access that server or have a typo in the server name. What cvsroot are you using? If you're running NT server with NT clients, you might want to look at how I set up my CVS server, documented at http://www.cvsnt.org/wiki/SetAcl. Hope this helps. Regards, Glen Starrett
