The less you try and change the better - it'll work if you just install
and go. Best to delete the repository you have set up and start a new
one. You could also uninstall and delete the registry key
HKLM\Software\Cvs just to be sure.

Try removing the domain.
Why do you need to use pserver? You can use sspi over the internet (but
then you will have to 'cvs login').
