There are various problems with using the new WinCVS "wizard" for
creating a CVSROOT, in short try this as your CVSROOT instead:
cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/TEMP/resp

Also it is not usual to store your repsoitory in /TEMP ...  If possible
please consider using CVSNT on the server as well as the client (yes
CVSNT does run on Linux/Unix etc).

Please direct CVSNT questions to the CVSNT newsgroup:

Please direct WinCVS questions to the CVSGUI newsgroup:

Be sure to search the newsgroup for previous posts on your topics.
There are many gettings started guides and FAQs around, eg:

     I'm using CVSNT server on Windows XP machine and CVSNT client + 
WinCVS on Windows 98. Since install everything works fine... Now when 
I've try to login using:

cvs -d :pserver;username=KP;hostname=;port=2401:/TEMP/resp 

WinCVS answering:

cvs95 [login aborted]: Error reading from server -1: 
Unknown error

Anybody knows whats is goinng on? Firewall's configuration is ok. Even 
if I run WinCVS on server machine with identical command, I've got the 
same error... My client machine was power down when I was loged in CVS, 
is this may be reason of this error?
