Hi All,

I am trying to use cvs on cygwin.  I am using windows 2000 and I have
set my CVSROOT to "localhost:c:\CVS".

when I execute the following command on the bash shell I get the
following connection error"

***  start of command and error ***********
$ cvs import -m "work" cad/java work start
> JOHNNY:Connection refused
cvs [import aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)
**** end of command and error *************


"JOHNNY" is the name of my computer. Does anyone know what is causing
this?

Thanks,

Johnny

Since nobody's offered up any solutions, let me hazard a guess...

The last time I used cvs, I was using a local repository just as you are (except not with cygwin).
You don't have to specify a host, so try setting CVSROOT to c:\CVS.
Or, use the "cygdrive" path:  CVSROOT=/cygdrive/c/CVS

The "Connection refused" error sounds like there's no daemon (i.e. CVS server) running on the appropriate port to connect to.  I'm no CVS master, but I'll bet there's a cvs daemon, or an entry in /etc/inetd.conf that you you need to set up for cvs requests over the network (even requests from localhost are considered network requests)
