OK, I'm just going to call them this for now: "Windows authentication (:sspi:)" "Windows authentication (:ntserver:)" As it looks to me like SSPI is more likely to be more secure (using Kerberos when both client and server support it), I assume that should be listed first? There doesn't seem to be a good way of indicating to a user which to use and when. >> - How does SSPI relate to :ntserver:?

I'd be interested to hear Tony, as it will clarify how TortoiseCVS should present these options.
