A *repository* usually *does not* have a CVS directory inside!
After initialization there should only be a CVSROOT dir which contains
the administrative control files.
Are you sure you are not mistaking the repository for the sandbox?

THe repository specification is off! THere are no drive letters in a
repository name, please check your entries. You should probably use
:sserver:alex at myserver:8400:/tconf instead

Rightly so! There is an error in CVSROOT!

Not what I have written, it does not mention any port number change...

This is the CVSNT list/forum and if you have problems with Tortoise
you should contact their list instead...

Because of the Drive letter and maybe because of the extra port number
(8400) you have added.
