I recently installed the version of CVSNT. I am not able to
get the previous versions of checked in files using the update command.


I executed the command -      cvs update -l -r 1.1 

It returns an error "Numeric Directory Tags not allowed".


The same command used to work with earlier version of CVS.


CVNT product version -

Client & Server Operating System version, Service Pack Level - Microsoft
Windows XP Professional 

Version 2002

Service Pack 2.


Please help to fix this error.
