If your CVS server is running on Windows then it is most certainly CVSNT not 

The correct place for questions about CVSNT is here:

CVSNT server and clients are available for Linux/Unix/Mac OS X etc etc.  It may 
be worthwhile using a CVSNT client on linux.

The exact syntax of the CVSROOT will depend on the configuration of the CVSNT 
server.  Also the CVS server on Windows may reject pserver access if it has 
been disabled.

For instance directly referring to the physical location on the Windows server 
has been discouraged for quite a long time (E:/CVSROOT/ is d3efined in the 
CVSNT control panel as a user defined location like /myrepo).

You may want to try:
cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:E:/CVSROOT/ login

Hi all,
I'm trying to check out a Module with CVS 1.1.17 from a Mandrake 10 Linux 
CVS is installed on a Windows Machine.

Assuming the CVS is installed on "WindowsMachine" on "E:/CVSROOT"
and the credentials are user/password:

cvs -d :pserver:user:address@hidden:E:/CVSROOT/

Unfortunately CVS rejects this command and issues the "Usage cvs: ...." prompt.

Does anybody know how to connect to the Windows CVS server ???
thanks a lot in advance
