Hello Arthur, I verified that both CVSNT dispatch and lock services are running and are automatic start. However, the protocol is ":local:". I have tried everything I can think of to do a checkout with the :pserver: (following the docs I have) with no success. (I get various errors depending on what I try.... But basically, cvsnt would not log me in) Can you point me at some documentation about how to do this -- I have not been able to find much?

(several event log entries are made with each error) What CVSROOT are you using - ie: when you do a checkout from TortoiseCVS what is the 'protocol' etc you are using, eg: :local:C:\CVSRepository :sspi:mypc:/CVSRepository :pserver:user at mypc:/CVSRepository Note: the :local: protocol should never under any circumstances be used - it is only for CVS Developers. If you do not already have CVSNT server running on your repository server then you should install CVSNT Server and use the sspi or pserver protocols. I believe that TOrtoiseCVS 1.10 may already install the server, but then disable the server in the services control panel. Go to Control Panels->Administrative Tools->Services and look for the CVSNT Dispatch service and the CVSNT Lock service - they should both be running and set for "automatic" start. Regards, Arthur
