I have installed CVS server cvsnt- I am getting below error while connecting using eclipse

"I/O has been interrupted.Timeout while reading from input streamThe most likely cause of
 the interrupt is either an intermittent network failure or a communications timeout.The CVS communications timeout can be adjusted in the Team/CVS preferences.Another possible cause is the improper configuration of the "ext" connection method.The "ext" connection method can be configured on the Team/CVS/EXT Connection Method preference page".

What will be the problem?

I'm adding this as a comment because it's a bit snarky and not really constructive, but I am curious - why on earth are you still using CVS? – Driftpeasant Dec 1 '11 at 16:06
:) We are using this one for maintenance projects. For all others We are using Git. Ok Any solution for above one? – Palani Dec 2 '11 at 5:02
