It stops CVSNT doing reverse DNS to verify clients... it doesn't stop other parts of the system doing so (eg. kerberos will do this as part of its handshake). I'm not aware of any way of completely removing it. You'll probably find on the affected machine that switching to pserver will fix the problem, as all the authentication is then internal to CVS rather than relying on the system configuration. >2) If it does, what else could be going wrong? There can be many things that break on a system... CVSNT just piggybacks on the existing system so assumes that's working. If the clock is wrong on the machine for example active directory authentication will stop working. If you have the machine name the same as another machine it'll behave erratically and may break completely... about a dozen other things I've come across over the years. It may just be a straight hardware problem - have you tried a different network card/hub? Tony
