I'm trying to go through the Eclipse tutorials and am stuck on the Team CVS tutorial. I have XP and set up CVS on my machine, but am unable to add the new CVS Repository. The error I get is Error validating location: "Could not connect to :pserver:anonymous@RICK1:c:/test_repository: Cannot connect to host: Connection refused: connect". I've tried disabling my firewall temporarily, with no change. There is virtually nothing on the web that explains to a new user how to set up Eclipse and CVS on a local machine.

1) When you "set up CVS" on your machine, did that include running the
pserver to accept connections?

2) The repository location probably shouldn't include mailto:. It should
be formatted like
:pserver:anonymous@hostname:path

3) I'm not sure what repository paths for CVS on Windows generally look
like, but the c:/ looks suspicious to me.

4) Is RICK1 the host name of your machine? I'd stick with locahost or
127.0.0.1
