The initial plan for included an option for syncronization 
between VSS and CVS repositories. Unfortunately it was not working last
time I tested it (Oct-2002).

OTOH, it worked fine for first time conversion, since it used *local*
access for converting from vss to rcs format. Once the repository was
converted I had to create the user and passwd files in CVSROOT module
so other users could remotely connect to CVS repository. These files are
probably missing from your CVSROOT module.

It's important to notice that you're not using a CVS server, but a CVSNT
server, which belongs to a different project (
Since CVSNT user and security administration differs from CVS user and
security administration, it's a good idea to chek the CVSNT wiki pages 
about the problems you're having with it.
