Thanks Bo,

Indeed, my CVSROOT string was incorrect, the one you suggested is the correct one. I also had a problem with the firewall, which was solved by including cvsservice.exe as an exception in the server machine's firewall setup.

Thanks a lot for your help and interest!

Try this CVSROOT instead:

I think you have provieded a malformed CVSROOT string, 
possibly using the WinCvs CVSROOT "build" function. Don't use that!

Hi Arthur,

Thanks for your quick reply. Here's some more info about the problem I'm having.

1) Server machine:
- Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2
- CVSNT Server version 2.5.04 (Zen) Build 3510
- Repository name: '/myrepo'
- Repository root: 'C:/Repositories/myrepo'
- Computer name: asimov
- Member of Wokgroup: WORKGROUP
- CVSNT Service and CVSNT Lock Service: running

2) Client machine:
- Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3
- WinCVS (Build 4)
- Computer name: TOSHIBA
- Member of Wokgroup: WORKGROUP
- No Python nor CTL installed

3) I am trying to import a module using the following parameters in WinCVS:
Repository path: "C:\Projects\DummyProject\"
CVSROOT: ":sspi;hostname=/asimov:/myrepo"

4) The error message I get is:
cvs -d :sspi;hostname=/asimov:/myrepo import -I ! -I CVS -m "no message" -n -- C:\Projects\DummyProject\ (in directory C:\Projects\DummyProject\)
cvs [import aborted]: Connection to server failed
Error connecting to host /asimov: No such host is known. 

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance,
