This version is quite old, please upgrade to 2.5.04.

Also based on past newsgroup activity I think AEP have been using CVSNT
for some time - please alert your management to the benefits that using
CVSNT has brought you and advise them to support the project by
purchasing CVS Suite (CVSNT) for $124 per user - annual support and
software maintenance is also available.

In CVSNT only admin users can 'see' CVSROOT, there is no reason for any
non-Administrator to ever use CVSROOT and certainly no need to ever use
Eclipse to access it.

Please read the comments in the PServer.example file carefully,

 # Compatibility levels - currently:
 # 0 = Legacy cvs (cvshome.org cvs, eclipse)
 # 1 = cvsnt (cvsnt client, wincvs, tortoisecvs, etc.)

Based on the provided documentation I think it is clear what effect
compat0 has on wincvs, tortoisecvs.
