I am unable to connect to a new cvs server that I have installed. I have seen similar posts on this mailing list regarding this problem, but none of the suggestions given have resolved the issue for me. I have tried installing both cvsnt 2.5.03.2260 and 2.5.03.2382. I receive the following error when attempting to login to cvs: C:\>cvs login Logging in to :pserver:cvsuser at localhost:2401:/cvs CVS Password: cvs [login aborted]: Error reading from server localhost: -1: Unknown error After it gives me the -1 error, any subsequent attempt to login returns the following error: cvs [login aborted]: Error reading from server localhost: 0: No such file or directory I have tried uninstalling both my firewall and antivirus software. The Windows XP firewall is disabled. I've tried changing the port numbers for both the cvs service and the cvs lock service. I've tried shutting down the cvs service and running cvsservice.exe -test, but that doesn't give much meaningful information. This is all that I get from cvsservice.exe -test: C:\Program Files\CVSNT>cvsservice.exe -test CVSNT 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2260 (Mar 3 2006) starting in test mode. TEMP/TMP currently set to C:\cvstemp Initialising socket... Starting auth server on port 2401/tcp... Couldn't register with active directory: Configuration information could not be read from the domain controller, either because the machine is unavailable, or access has been denied. CVSNT initialised successfully 003ba3b3: Cvsnt process started 003ba4bc: Cvsnt process terminated 003d1a65: Cvsnt process started 003d1b6e: Cvsnt process terminated 003d2fa2: Cvsnt process started 003d302f: Cvsnt process terminated Are there any other known programs which cause socket issues with cvsnt like this? Is there any better way to debug this or get more info out of the cvs service as to what is happening? Is there a way to increase the logging/tracing level?
