Any cvs command hangs - even "cvs -d d:/cvsroot init" hangs (after a blank
console window opens).
(both from CVSNT Repository Config Panel as well as WinCVS)

System Config:

WinXP Pro SP2
CVSNT 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382 ( C:\Program Files\CVSNT\)
(both server and client on same machine)
Python 2.4.3
Commodo Firewall Pro (both cvs and cvslock allowed connections)
AVG Anti-Virus

Installed CVSNT (msi build), and WinCVS

Installed stable version WinCVS 2.0.4, but same results.

Stopped cvslock service.
Tried "cvslock -test" command which gives following result:

CVSLock 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382 (Jul  5 2006) starting in test mode.
Initialising socket...
Starting lock server on port 2402/tcp...
Using internal mdns Responder
IP_ADD_MEMBERSHIP failed : The requested address is not valid in its
mdns initialization failed

What could be the reason? Can anybody help me sorting this out?

Thanks & Regards,
