Hello, all! I'm over in Taiwan connecting via DSL to a server in California. I mention that only because I was happily connecting via a cable modem and checking my code into CVS, and when I changed technologies, it appears to have broken. Of course, that happens to coincide with our sys admin moving the server to a new office, but he is convinced that nothing has changed. So...

cvs login
(Logging in to address@hidden)
Unknown host

I can connect using WinFTP and SecureCRT to this machine, using the
same user name and password. Also, when I try the debugging suggestion:

telnet 2401

and send random text, I do see:

cvs [pserver aborted]: bad auth protocol start: foo

Any suggestions at all would be lovely! I would really appreciate any
help! I have combed the documentation, but can't find any reference to
unknown host errors.

Thanks in advance!
