I have reproduced this using > 2.5.02.2064. cvsnt must not start a lockserver when using a network drive - doing so would be to invite the gross error of having a lockserver per user. There must be *one* lockserver, and it must be defined in the CVSROOT/config before using network shares like that. It doesn't have to be on the same machine as the repository, but it must exist. Tony
