Holy Cow, this worked...Thank you, Bo. First, I changed the Valid Repository Root to E:\CVS on the server Second, I imported my file: cvs import www ./www www start Third, Logged in to the server from the client with the following CVSROOT: :pserver:mdb:password at 10.0.1.251:E:/CVS One important note is that when I entered the port number (Tortoise interface), I could not make the connection because CVS did not like this: :pserver:mdb:password at 10.0.1.251:2401:E:/CVS And would not allow me to use the colon between the port and the path. I kept getting invalid repository errors. Thanks again for everyone's help!
