Yes, this situation is started some weeks ago, and tryng to fix the problem
I made the installation of 2 releases of the server without success.
Looking at the message of the cvslock it seem to be a network/tcp/dns
related problem. In my laptop who act as cvs server I have both tcp/ip v4
and v6 up and running.
Even disabling ipv6 don't fix the problem.
My frustration is depending on I can't trap or log any kind of activity of
cvslock during the problem, so I can't find the right direction to follow to
understand the cause.

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.

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
