Is your repository actually named 'cvs' or is that just a placeholder
like my_machine?  If your repository is named 'cvs' I suggest you use
a different repository name like 'cvsrepo' or 'cvsfiles' etc.

Can you connect to the server from the command line? using WinCVS?

If your clients are all on a local network then the best protocol
would probably be sspi but without the 'my_name@'. Like this:

If you use a CVSROOT that includes 'user at server' like your pserver
CVSROOT then you should click the login button and complete the
login before you click the check button.
:pserver:my_name at my_machine:/cvsrepo
:sspi:my_name at my_machine:/cvsrepo
require a login the first time you try to connect.
After you successfully connect you do not need to
login again.

Subject: [cvsnt] Connection failed

Hi, this is the first time I touch on CVS.  I still stuck at connection

I have installed CVSProxy and CVSNT into the same machine which running
WinXP Pro.

Open up VS.NET to connect CVSNT:
	:pserver:my_name at my_machine:/cvs
Then, I click "CHECK" button:
	[checkout aborted]: connect to my_machine:2401 failed: No connection could
be made
	because the target machine actively refused it.

I have tried all kinds of protocol, it still can't connect to the server.
Please help!
