Hi guys, I'm a little stumped and was hoping someone could help me out. 

I'm running win2k3 server with cvsnt and clients are winxp pro 
with the same cvsnt version.

I seem to sporadically and randomly get one of two errors. One says 
something like:

cvs [server aborted]: cannot change permissions on temporary directory 
C:\cvstemp/cvs-serv3936: Permission denied 

Except that cvsnt is running as system and system has full control on that 

The other error is a simple timeout. 

We are running McAffee antivirus on the server, but we have it set to not 
scan the temp directory or the repositories. we are also running a cruise 
control .net server against the system (which is how we discovered the 

Does anybody have any ideas? Thanks!
