I have CVSNT server running on a Win2003 machine
I hage CVSNT client running on my desktop
I am using TKCVS 8.0.3
I can use command line from windows shell to perform
cvs ls -l -R
and get a listing of all modules and files in modules
Or I can simply do
and just get a list of modules.
However when I try and use the tkcvs module browser I get
cvs server:User XXXXXX cannot read CVSROOT
Now everything else I have tried to do in TkCVS seems to work ok. I can check in modules, check out modules (assuming I know the module name), check in check out files etc.
Given that the command line listing works I am at least somewhat confident that CVSNT is installed and configured correctly, and that all the permisions are correct.
What is TKCVS actually doing when I run the module browser? Is there a way to echo the commands it is sending to CVS?

A follow up
Making some progress.
Have got at least some access but still not sure I have this right.
My expectation is that when all is configured correctly, if I click on the module/repository browser I will see a listing of all modules that have been created in the repository. Then I can select one an check it out to a local diretory and work on it.
The Module browser does not give an error now but it seems to be looking in my local home directory for info
The CVSROOT appears correct
The Module name/entry is blank
The current directory is my local home
Am I misinterpreting what this tool will do?
I am going to have a lot of users with no CVS experience and need a way for them to see what modules already exist for checkout.

At the command line
after logging using the remote server CVSROOT
returns both modules that have been created namely:
CVSROOT is the module created when the repository was created containing control files
ESState is my little test directory.
I would expect the module browser would simply list those two modules as well. Instead it lists nothing.
Any help is appreciated.
