I got the following error when I'm trying to check out a module from CVSNT: cvs server: Error connecting to host localhost: No such host is known. Searching the cvsnt archive shows that a few other people have experienced the same problem. Like those people, I believe my network is properly configured to resolve "localhost" to "127.0.0.1" I eventually fixed the problem by using the CVSNT service control panel program to change the lock server address from "localhost" to "127.0.0.1" To prevent a problem like this from happening in the future for other people, I'd humbly suggest that the default for this entry be changed from "localhost" to "127.0.0.1" regards, -- Kohsuke Kawaguchi Sun Microsystems kohsuke.kawaguchi at sun.com
