In defense of cvsnt and Eclipse... I was able to get it to work with very little trouble. First of all, just like the error message says... don't use a prefix... if you don't know what a prefix is... it was explained in the installation instructions. When you set up a repository... you have the option of using a prefix so that you don't have to put the whole path in your cvs client. DON'T use a prefix, uncheck the box in the cvsnt admin tool and use the whole path to your repository. Second, you will want to check the box in the cvsnt admin tool that says something about "act like a unix server" (or something like that) cause some dumb-ass who probably doesn't like Windows programs decided to hard code stuff in Eclipse to not work with cvsnt... probably jealous that a windows program that started as a ?nix program has now become a more robust product than the ?nix flavor. Sad but seems to be true. Anyway, thats it... if your having other problems then you are probably not using the correct settings or protocol.
