Hi, I had a "no such user" problem with CVSNT, because the user (testuser) has to be declared in the Windows NT users list. BTW, I'm using pserver, not ntserver, with no impersonation. As you probably know, in the pserver mode, you have to declare the users in the passwd file (which is located in the CVSROOT subdirectory inside the repository directory on the server). HTH, Olivier.
