Stefan, The client environment variable CVS_SERVER (or is it CVSSERVER..?.) is what defines which binary is used on the server, so if you have cvs 1.12 installed in /usr/bin/cvs and CVSNT server installed in /usr/local/bin then setting CVS_SERVER=/usr/local/bin/cvs on the *client* before connecting to the server should tell the server to use CVSNT not CVS... However: 1) CVSNT can use a CVS repository, but not vice-versa, once a change is written to the RCS files CVS will no longer be able to use it 2) sharing a single sandbox betweek linux and windows users is not recommended, eg: if it was checked out on linux (LF) then a windows programs adds CR then it is committed the result will be a mess. 3) CVSNT Server has additional configuration files you will need to configure before you can use it (/etc/cvsnt/Pserver).
