Have a CVSNT RH Linux client and in trying to connect to a CVSNT Server (both V2.5.03) 
  on WINXPSP2 using the sserver protocol I get the following:
  $ cvs -t -t -t -d :sserver: login
  13:52:11:   -> Tracelevel set to 3.  PID is 6109
  13:52:11:   -> Session ID is 17dd46435bcbbca5
  13:52:11:   -> Session time is Thu May 10 17:52:11 2007
  13:52:11:   -> Client locale is en_US.UTF-8
  13:52:11:   -> Loading protocol sserver as sserver.la
  13:52:11:   -> main loop with CVSROOT=:sserver:

  13:52:14:   -> SetUserValue

  13:52:14:   -> Config file name /home/cvsntuser/.cvs/sserver
  13:52:14:   -> Could not open /home/cvsntuser/.cvs/sserver

  SSL connection failed (-1): error:1408F10B:SSL 
  routines:SSL3_GET_RECORD:wrong version number
  cvs [login aborted]: Connection to server failed
  On the Windows Server I found the following in the event log:
  Event Type: Information Event Source: CVSNT Event Category: None Event ID: 1
Date:  5/10/2007 Time:  4:44:28 PM User:  N/A Computer: IBM-EBD15D494FD
Description: E Unable to read/load the server private key (0): error:0906D06C:PEM 
  routines:PEM_read_bio:no start line
  I followed the recommend install setup for sserver according to:
  http://web.telia.com/~u86216177/InstallCVSNT25.html  and
  This to work from the Linux client using pserver but not with sserver.. Ideas? TIA, David
