Repository locations are saved by eclipse. Developers do not specify them
each time they use CVS.
Repository location = server + path on that server (there could be multiple
repositories on the same server).

You should set SystemAuth=no and list allowed users in passwd file - for
more details look in the cvs.chm installed with the cvsnt server.

Please make sure you have no other applications listening on this port.
You can  try to start lockserver manually using "cvslock.exe -test" so you
can see possible error messages.
