I must be missing some obvious points somewhere....

My server setup is as follows:
Server 1 (test/dev) has CVSNT installed 
Server 2 (live) has the client installed.
Both servers on same network, same subnet.

I've installed CVSNT (2.5.03) and seem to have got my repo set up - this is
running on a w2k server on a network.

The trouble comes when I try to access the repo from the other server, that
hosts the live copies of the files.
I'm trying to figure out which protocol is right, and what the repo name etc
should be, and I'm getting nowhere!

I don't actually need any security, since there is only me using this setup.

I've tried PSERVER and SSERVER, and the best I can get is 'no such

the configuration settings I have are:
servername: cn-test
name /councilnetcvs/intranet.york.gov.uk
root e:/councilnetcvs/intranet.york.gov.uk
description councilnet

using PSERVER, I get to
"no such repository"
