Hello Arthur,
Nice to meet you, and Thanks for your rensponse

I made the tests:

Hi Mauro,

Long time no see!  Did you go to Cu2006?  Gotta find another excuse to visit your town soon...

Is the laptop running CVSNT server?  If so stop the lock service then on the command line use "cvslock -test" to get the debug output.  Then run the command in another window with -ttt, eg "cvs -ttt -d :sspi:localhost:/myrepo co test".  Be sure to attach the relavent parts of both logs.

More info here:

Since some week I have a problem in every operation against CVSNT. I use TortoiseCVS and when I try to use any function (commit, diff,
history...) the program start and wait for the lock endlessly. I think the problem is related to cvslock because if I change "lockserver=none" I can (with some other problems) accomplish every command. And if during the wait I kill the cvslock.exe process I get an error on TCVS transcript.

During the wait cvslock.exe seem to be sleeping. Even filemon.exe
(Sysinternals.com) don't show any file IO activity.
I'm quite shure it is not a port related problem, because even after some port change the problem still alive. It should not even a permission problem, because I try to use an administrator account without success. Even downloading the antivirus (Symatec) does not resolve.

At this point I have no more ideas to try and I need the community help.

My configuration:
  a.. CVSNT 2.5.03 build 2382 installed on a Toshiba laptop whit WinXP Pro
  b.. TortoiseCVS 1.9.18 installed in the same Laptop

Thanks in advance for any help
