Normally one uses either the real computer name or "localhost". The latter is only possible when connecting to the server from the same PC as the server runs on.

This indicates that you are using XP-Home. XP-Home is *NOT SUITED* for CVSNT since XP-Home is not a server enabled operating system. Microsoft has gone to special lengths in order to prohibit XP-Home users from using their PC:s as servers with proper user logins. The only account used is Guest. >10:28:31 PM cvs.exe:4036 OPEN C:\TEMP\cvs-serv4036 NOT FOUND >10:28:31 PM cvs.exe:4036 OPEN C:\TEMP\cvs-serv4036 NOT FOUND >10:28:31 PM cvs.exe:4036 OPEN C:\TEMP\cvs-serv4036 NOT FOUND > These follow from the permission setting of C:\TEMP plus the fact that you are on XP-Home. Please upgrade your operating system. /Bo (Bo Berglund, developer in Sweden) _______________________________________________ cvsnt mailing list cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook http://www.cvsnt.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cvsnt https://www.march-hare.com/cvspro/en.asp#downcvs ----- End forwarded message -----
