i've installed cvsnt on my laptop (and read manual and faq), under
windows hp home.
when i try to launch whatever command, for example:
SET CVSROOT=d:\dev\cvs
cvs co gameprog1

I receive this warning [translated from italian]:
d: unknown host
rsh.exe: impossible to establish connection
cvs[init aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)

the same command works instead if i execute the command from the CVSNT

it seems strange to me because the error is not related to the path
problem, but to the connection. also, 'd' char in 'd: unknown host' is
the first character of CVSROOT value (if i set 'c:\mydir'), the error
states 'c: unknown host').

thank you
