On Windows XP Pro SP2, with CNXT V9x PCI Modem, Windows Firewall.
CVSNT versions including 2.5.01.1976, 2.5.02.2064, 2.5.02.2088
A fatal error
Faulting application cvslock.exe, version 0.0.0.0,
faulting module howl.dll, version 0.9.5.2, fault address 0x0000a1eb.
occurs during service start-up if Zeroconf publication is enabled.
If Zeroconf publication is turned off, or the cvslock service started
manually from the control panel after establishing an internet connection
then no error occurs.
I don't necessarily regard this as a CVSNT problem, but you did ask for

I travel a lot (!) and have a repository on my laptop and it's never
crashed (currently 2.5.02.2091). The problem you are describing here is
different to the multicast question - please report the actual commands
and error messages in a separate post with a descriptive subject line.
You can also install a loopback connection as described here:

> LockDir=H:\CVS\Locks and the cvslock service
That feature is no longer supported.
See Tony's comments for more info.

This statement implies that sometimes it doesn't work. Please specify
what you think "working" is, why you think that it is not "working" and
the exact circumstances involved are.
Also remember to include the CVSNT client and Server version numbers,
Operating system name and version and service pack level, and the exact
commands involved and the exact wording of any error messages. Traces
and other system information (set, ipconfig, cvsdiag etc) are also often
