Recently I have set up a CVSNT server with pserver authentication. Everything 
worked perfectly but after a server reboot the clients (Eclipse SDK) time out 
when trying to connect.

The network connection is ok, and the CVSNT service is up. It works from the 
command line at the server but only when not using pserver authentication:

C:\>cvs -d /codigo ls -l  (works)
C:\>cvs -d :pserver:toni at localhost/codigo ls -l

This last command "waits" for a long time and then it lists the modules, but it 
takes several minutes. Other clients like Eclipse don't wait for so long and 
fail with a timeout error message.

Any clues?

Server: CVSNT 2.5.04 Build 3236 on Windows 2000 SP4
Clients: cvs.exe from that same version / Eclipse 3.4.0
