I had the same Problem with Win CVS 1.3.  Problem with  Authentication "ntserver" in
my case was, that WinCVS 1.3 adds an "@" to the CVSROOT variable (which is an error)
-> e.g. "@server:f:/user/cvs-dir". What you have to do: delete the "@" in the
CVSROOT-setting in the Import settings, then it should work properly. Anyway, as
WinCVS1.3 is still beta, I would suggest to use 1.2 as basis and 1.3 just as a test

I've had some problems using CVS NT Server (ver. and on the client
side WIN CVS 1.3 (beta version).
I wasn't able to configure the client in order to access the remote
repository (it's on f:\cvs).
The server machine is on an NT domain different from the client machine
domain: is that a costranint for CVS to work properly?
I also set a DEVELOPERS group on the server machine adding a valid user for
the client.
Yet I can't operate on the remote repository also for simple action like
creating a new repository or exporting an empty module.
Any suggestion?
