RE: login failure on WindowsNT

I thought CVS looked up the port number in the services file using a
getservbyname call. I have CVS on NT & AIX talking to CVS server running on
a separate AIX node that is listening on port 11001. This was done by
setting the cvspserver in the services file on all the machines (NT/client,
AIX/client and AIX/server).
