Then from my summer house I used the laptop to connect via sspi to this CVSNT server. Now, would you believe, this server works OK when trying the cvs ls command after I log in... Summary: - Newly installed WinCvs on laptop and desktops. - CVSNT server installed from your setup 57g on two W2000 servers - cvs ls command fails on one server and CVSNT creates a strange temp dir with a name that is part of the error message... <- clue? - cvs ls command works OK on other server(s) - cvs ls works also OK on first server when invoked from a laptop that has the development system installed so it can compile both cvsnt and wincvs. How can the client affect the way the server executes a command???? /Bo
