You may be right, but I can't find any other executables (Microsoft or
other) on the server that are signed, except the cvs services
(cvsservice and cvslock) and of course the cvsnt-installer, but they
all start immediatly with no delay at all. Only the cvs.exe processes,
that are "childs" of the cvsservice are delayed. The delay is constant
and about 90 seconds per execution.
The security settings on the server have no "Software Restriction
If I use Sysinternals Process Explorer to locate any cvs dll, I can
push the "Verify" button on the dll-properties window, and the dll is
verified faster than I can blink.
If I display properties for a cvs.exe process in Process Explorer, the
TCP/IP tab will show that the process is issuing 6 consecutive
requests to 199.7.xxx.xxx:http (the xxx.xxx portion varies, but is
mostly 71.190). Every request stays in status SYN_SENT for
approximately 15 seconds.
I cannot ping or nslookup the IP-address 184.108.40.206. (Where/what/who
defines which IP-address to use for the certificate verification?) I'm
told theres is no blocking in the firewall og DNS.
"crl.verisign.com/net" resolves to different IP-adresses
I don't have similar problems with any other program.
When running cvs.exe on the command line on the server there is NO

No - it's a windows thing. CVSNT doesn't verify the signature -
windows does. It does this in 2.5.04 because the binaries are signed.
Many corporates now have a policy not to run any unsigned executables
- and many (most?) new commercial software is all signed - so you will
be having the same problem with lots of programs - including every
