I've only used the CVSNT server on the same machine as the repository.

Over the years, I have learned that trying to "get past" blocks like
this (with any software, not just CVSNT) is usually counter-productive -
just go with the flow.

Is there any reason you can't install the CVSNT server on the same
machine that currently hosts the repository? Or move the repository to
the new XP machine?
