Tried that. :-(

Done that. :-(

Tried that as well, an also tried accessing the server through WinCvs.

Yup. I know. But while installing it I was logged in as a particular user.
At one point my idea was that the problem might be caused by the fact
that my username is 'Jurko Gospodnetic' (containing a space and one
'localized' character) which them somehow might get written wrong in some
configuration or other.
In the meantime I managed to get it working with no problems on my
home machine which has pretty much the same configuration. The only
differences are in the exact software that is installed on the system. I
now try to make it work without Nod32 installed on my machine.
Thanks for the help.
