CVS login problem : port change?

CVS login problem : port change?

CVS login problem : port change?

As usual new to CVS, my problem is as follows

I have set these through DOS,( using winXP)

set path=%path%;C:\Program Files\cvsnt

set CVSROOT=:pserver;username=anonymous;hostname=cvs.gnucleus.sourceforge.net :/repo

so when I run

C:\>cvs login
Logging in to :pserver:anonymous@cvs.gnucleus.sourceforge.net:2401:/repo cvs [login aborted]: connect to  cvs.sourceforge.net:2401 failed: A socket operation was attempted to an unreachable host.

I have tried pinging sourceforge.net it works  what's my probelm and solution.

Thank You

RE: CVS login problem : port change?

The port is correct, I think. Seems to be the host that you have wrong. For the new SourceForge settings, the unixname should go before `cvs'. The CVSROOT should be:


set CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous@gnucleus.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/gnucleus login
