I have just installed Tortoise CVS on my windows 2000 machine and I am trying to checkout a repository from the remote CVS server. The protocol being used is Secure Shell (:ext:). Now when i try to check out a module, it does not go past the first step and I get an error "bad command or file name" from cvs server. Now my colleagues have the exact same settings as mine and they are able to checkout the repository successfully. When i try doing the same on a separate machine (Windows XP), i am able to checkout successfully. This means that this is a machine specific and not an account specific problem. The only difference that I can see is that I have a Windows 2000 machine, while everyone else has XP in them. The tortoise version is 1.8.25.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
