I am having a peculiar problem. I have a cvs server running on a private 
network, on redhat 7.1, with an ip address of I have a client 
running windows 98, on a dynamically allocated ip address of

Now I have the cvs server set up to allow connection using pserver on port 
2401. I use the cvsroot of :pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot

>From another linux client this works fine. But when i try and log on using 
the windows machine (i.e. cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot I get no 
response and it eventually times out with an error.

I have run tcpdump and it appears that when trying to connect from the 
windows client the server tries to query a nameserver about itself. This is 
confirmed by the fact that the login works when I dial up and have network 
access to the nameserver.

I have tried 'telnet 2401' and this appears to respond 
correctly with a bad auth error message.

Can anyone help?
