Newbie Question

(OP)
Hi, I have never used CVS before, and what I am trying to do is access the Jakarta POI project.  I am using wincvs, and the command that it generates is:

cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.apache.org:/home/cvspublic checkout -P -d C:\HWPF -- jakarta-poi (in directory C:\HWPF)

But it throws the following error, but I am pretty sure that the server is right, since I copied and pasted it from their website.  

Error connecting to host cvs.apache.org: No such host is known.
cvs [checkout aborted]: Connection to server failed

Thanks for your help.

The most likely way for the world to be destroyed, most experts agree, is by accident. That's where we come in; we're computer professionals. We cause accidents.
