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.

So I finally got CVSNT + Tortoise working for me on my LAN,

 where I can specify the computer's name as the server name,

ex: :sspi:CVSserver:/cvsnt/cvsrepo

and connect, since I have the same user/password on both client

and server.


Now I want to access remotely. I opened ports 2401 and 2402 in my

 firewall to that servermachine. I can obtain the mostly-static IP

 address. But when I go remote, I only know (for example):




 In other words, no domain or machine name.


Suggestions? Would a different protocol work? I tried ext and sspi

and pserver, they all fail, generally saying 


cvs.exe [import aborted]: connect to x.x.x.x:2401 failed: No connection
could be made because the target machine actively refused it.
