Wanted: Help Specifying CVSROOT

I'm going nuts trying to understand the syntax for specifying CVSROOT for a
windows server!

I have created a repository and used CVSNT service control panel to add the
repository C:\CONVEX. (The documentation did not mention this, but it seemed
like a good idea).

I've tried using cygwin BASH and just plain old cmd.exe (dos command line)
to login and nothing seems to work!

Here is one (of many) attempts from cmd.exe:

C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs>cvs -d
:pserver:address@hidden:2401:c:/CONVEX login

cvs login: CVSROOT may only specify a positive, non-zero, integer port (not

cvs login: Perhaps you entered a relative pathname?

cvs [login aborted]: Bad CVSROOT:

How do I specify the windows device name so it does not get confused with
the port number?
