CVSNT Server Error

I have no idea where I should ask this question, so sorry if its in the wrong place.

We use a CVS NT Server, and I think that the server installation itself is very flaky. We had a power loss with a full crash at one point in the system.

It usually tracks ok, but then we get this.

cvs.exe [checkout aborted]: cvs server: connect to 127.0.0.1(127.0.0.1):2402 failed: An operation on a socket could not be performed because the system lacked sufficient buffer space or because a queue was full

And this occurs on basically any operation that we try to perform on the cvs server.

Restarting the CVS NT server is imposssible, as the system holds open the 2401 port and does not release it. Thus we need to full reboot the server.  Which isn't always the best option. Especially when our Dbase is on the server.

The plot thickens:

We cannot SEE any file shares on the server.

open a windows and go to \\server and see nothing.

IF you know an actual share though, you can open them. As in \\Server\Shared is a viable share and then you can continue exploring.

Secondly, our office has internet connection. My computer has internet connection. I can locally connect to the server. But the server cannot access the internet in any form.

Hi,

My understanding:
- CVS server has a shared folder
- server restrict communications to port 2402
- server is reacheabled immediately after reboot
- server links to the web immediately after reboot
- server IP is other than 127.0.0.1 (localhost) but windows lost it address

Ih this scenario, sounds a TCP/IP error caused by an aplication with bad I/O handling. Something like a pointer that points to a buffer, increase the address and never return to starting point.
Or push/pop sequence with bad ordering.
This misfunction can be checked if the problem persists with only one user; maybe the multi user access is not well managed.

the issue is with the server itself. I moved the repos off the server onto an XP SP2 machine and i haven't had an issue since.
Cheers for the input
