Remove the passwd file--you don't need it if you're using an account that exists in NT server. > 3. open command window and run the command: > cvs passwd -a administrator From the instructions I got, I should be > prompted to enter a password BUT I didn't.

Assuming that you have your repos named test then "/test" is correct (check the control panel applet for the name of your repository). Once you've removed the passwd file, you should be able to: cvs -d :pserver:administrator at firebox-700:/TEST login cvs -d :pserver:administrator at firebox-700:/TEST ls Regards, -- Glen Starrett
