Hi Alex,

See the faq at (  They host cvsnt stuff.  There is no google newsgroup.

my apologies if this is not the newsgroup for cvsnt (if its not could
someone direct me to the right one).

anyway, I just setup a new cvsnt server and am trying to access it
using the latest tortoisecvs.  I'm trying to use sserver.  I createda
repository with name /tconf and it's in the directory d:/tconf.  It
has a cvs folder inside it and looks to be properly initialized.

On the client, if I right click an empty directory and go to checkout.
I setup the server, username, module name, etc.  But it tells me that


In F:\test2: "C:\Program Files\TortoiseCVS\cvs.exe" "-q" "checkout"
"-P" "/tconf"

Empty password used - try 'cvs login' with a real password
cvs.exe [checkout aborted]: D:/tconf: no such repository

Error, CVS operation failed


However, if I set this stuff up in DOS based on this website

(see the 'test your new server from dos') then I can list the contents
of the folder just fine.  One thing I did notice is that when I set it
up in DOS, the command stirng ends up something like
CVSROOT=: sserver:address@hidden:8400:/tconf as opposed to the tortoise
gui which looks like CVSROOT=:sserver:address@hidden:8400:D:/tconf.

anyone have any idea why this is failing?
