URLs use forward slashes, not backslashes. Using backslashes can have
unexpected effects since they're escape characters in a lot of the
unix-oriented tools.

However, more to the point, on CVSNT you generally don't include the
drive in the CVS connection string, since, as you've spotted, it
causes the number of colons to be wrong. There's a workaround for this
- look in the cvsnt docs for "repository prefix". Its a server setting
that prepends the windows drive info to the client's connection
string. In your case, you could set the repository prefix (on the
server) to 'D:/dept' and use the connection string:


... or something like that. You should be able to test this out with
the cvsnt command line client (ie cvs login).

Hope this helps
