Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

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.
