I am facing problem while connecting the remote CVSNT Server from my
desktop using WinCVS client.
But I am not facing any problems while working (both installed on my
desktop) locally. I am able to Import, Check out & update the documents.

I have installed the CVSNT on server.

Created the Repository under E:/cvs/cvsrepos I am using the CVSROOT=:pserver:address@hidden:E:/cvs/cvsrepos

And trying to connect from my desk top, then I am getting the following
error message.

Kindly let me know what might be the problem. Waiting for your quick and
favorable response in this regard.

Error Msg:

cvs -d :pserver:tr0014661:@ init cvs [init aborted]: E:/cvs/cvsrepos/: no such repository
***** CVS exited normally with code 1 *****

1) you need to run init directly on the machine with the repository without using any of the remote protocols. 2) the stuff after -d should probably match what you set CVSROOT to above. I think you have an extra : in your init line. 3) after init'ing the repo you will need to 'cvs login' to it before doing anything else.

4) if the above advice does not solve your problem, then you are likely having a CVSNT problem that would be better answered on their list. see links below.
