This is fine... the extnt.exe is a seperate app.

for CVS_SERVER, i just put "cvs server"... although, I don't know if it 
makes a difference.

if your already logged into the domain... you only have to put your username 
here... not the domain/username.  Probably not the problem though.

You should try connecting from the command prompt. This might give you a 
better error code. just go to where your extnt.exe file is and type the 

extnt.exe <host> -l <username> cvs server

If it connects... you won't see anything... it will just go to the next line 
and look like it has hung. ctrl-c out and you then know you can connect 
outside of Eclipse.
