Indeed that is what I found out. I expected the sync protocol to be a 
of installing both servers and setting the server and port numbers and all 

the syncing would be handled by CVSNT, just like a data mirroring tool 
do but without the requirement of extra software. It turns out the sync 
protocol doesn't handle the actual syncing and you still have to setup a
mirroring tool yourself.
