Bo, I reinstalled CVSNT using your installation tips page. I also reinstalled Turtoise. I was able to get pass the problems I had with Turtoise by configuring the Module tab using the following: -----Protocol: Locally mounted folder (:local) -----Protocol: blank -----Server: localhost -----Port: 2401 -----Repository folder: my full repository folder path -----User name: blank I received an error when I was using a configuration like this: -----Protocol: Windows authentication (:sspi:). -----Protocol: blank -----Server: my server name -----Port: 2401 -----Repository folder: my full repository folder path -----User name: my user name Also, when issuing commands from the command line the CVSROOT env variable needed to be defined. When I did not have it defined the "cvs ls" command was aborted. I set the CVSROOT env variable to :local:<repositorypath> and the command line worked fine. For now this is fine for me since I am using the source control repository for my personal use. I would, ultimately, like to be able to use the Windows authentication to allow others to access the source.
