I would normally have SSPI enabled but as I was testing using the
'local' protocol I disabled everything I shouldn't need in an attempt to
limit what could be causing the problem.

I have reinstalled Windows XP Pro SP3, disabled 'Simple File Sharing'
and installed CVSNT (RC9). The machine is configured to use
DHCP and is obtaining its IP configuration from the BDC's DHCP server. I
have not as yet joined the domain so it is using 'WORKGROUP' (default)
and all operations are being carried out as the 'Administrator' (default

I have checked a number of machines on the network (PDC, BDC and various
XP clients) none of which have IPV6 installed.

The command:
cvs -ttt -d :local:C:/CVSNTRepo/KeywordTesting ls

Network cable unplugged ~1 second to completion.
Network cable plugged in ~90 seconds before any output then immediate

Thanks for your continuing help.
