'Clients are allowed to trace server' option was enabled and the CVSNT 
server restarted.I read the output using -ttt option, I could not really 
get much relevant information; at the end it reads:

18:47:48: S -> rcsbuf_fill(010388D0,04B70AB8,0012F3AC,0012F3D8)
18:47:48: S -> rcsbuf_fill(010388D0,04B71EB8,0012F3AC,0012F3D8)
cvs [server aborted]: unrecognized operation '\x0' in /Path/Sample.bin,v

With files at the repository that work for all commands the -ttt option

15:32:48:   -> GetUnixFileModeNtEA(A,000006BC) returns 0666
15:32:48:   -> close_directory()

this last output is the same for the affected file, that is it gets to
the close_directory line as well, but then it throws the 
unrecognized operation '\x0'.

I'm using now client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.03 (Scorpio) 
Build 2382 (client/server)

I switched the client to the sserver protocol. 
extn.ini file reads:


CVSROOT env variable reads:
CVSROOT=:sserver:mhernandez at myserver:/local/cvsroot

cvsdiag still renders:  ":sserver: installed: No" without the quotes.

>Try this command on the server: cvs info
cvs info yields:
local               (internal)
ext                 ext 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382
gserver             gserver 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382 (Active Directory)
pserver             pserver 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382
server              server 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382
sserver             sserver 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382
ssh                 ssh 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382
sspi                sspi 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382

>do a 'cvs status filename.ext' and it will tell you the options are 
either -kb or -kB.
