I don't know XP Media Center, but this could be a firewall issue on the server. You need to allow inbound connections on port 2401. > Here is the string: >:sspi:cvsuser at MYSERVER:/tonys/CVS-Repository > > On the CVS Control Panel: > Server: myserver > name: /tonys/CVS-Repository > Root: c:/tonys/CVS-Repository Typically, you would assign a single repository name to the location on the server, e.g. myrepo, to c:/tonys/cvs-repository. Also, with sspi, you could use your Windows login automatically. With that, your connection string would typically look like :sspi:myserver:/myrepo (or :sspi:myuser at myserver/myrepo, if you want to use your username). Gerhard
