I am using CVSNT 2.5.03 installed on a server running Windows XP 
Professional, and am accessing a repository on there via the CVS support in 
RSA v6 (ie Eclipse). On my work network, everything works fine, all the 

When I am away from the office, I connect to my work network via Broadband 
and a VPN. When I do this, CVS mostly works, but I get some occasional 
failures. Certain files or directories will not synchronize, and if included 
in a synch cause a synchronization failed message "Connection reset by peer: 
socket write error". Another operation which fails is applying a version tag 
across several projects.

A colleague of mine experiences the same failure with applying a version tag 
even when on the work network (but it works fine for me on the work 
network). Synchronize works OK for him on the work network.

There would seem to be some problem in the networking connection layer. Is 
this problem known/familiar? Can anyone suggest a fix -- it is a little 
irksome. Or how can I diagnose further what is going wrong and where (ie, is 
it Eclipse or CVSNT that has a problem?!).

thanks in advance
