This means that there is no PC listening on that IP:port combination.
The error message is less than helpful though (actively refusing...).
You must check up the whole chain from client via the LAN/firewall etc
to the CVS server.
I assume that when you are inside the LAN you can successfully use the
CVSNT server? In that case you have a firewall setup problem.
