Hello, This was in fact a server issue, which seemed specific to the US anoncvs server. I ran the same commands, however, I used the German anoncvs server, as seen below: setenv CVSROOT [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/home/ncvs I was able to successfully synchronize my source with no errors. Thank you very much for your help. Much appreciated!! KB

I can, but only if I include the -rRELENG_4_10 part.

Of course, I might be doing something wrong, but I'm completely lost on what it could be. > > Do you have "CVS_RSH=ssh" in your environment? > >From man cvs: > CVS_RSH > cvs uses the contents of this variable to determine the name of > the remote shell command to use when starting a cvs server.
