I set up WinCVS v1.11.1.3 (57c) on 2000 server.

I validate users against domain users accounts.

Everything is wonderful with ntserver mode form clients (wincvs, ecc.).

The problem raises when I try to use pserver mode

This is what I see by connecting from a DOS prompt on the same machine:

C:\>cvs -d:pserver:<user>@<server>:f:\cvs login
Logging in to :pserver:<user>@<server>:2401f:\cvs
CVS password: *******
cvs [login aborted]: authorization failed: server <server> rejected
access to f:\cvs for user <user>

This is a dump of traffic between a client and the server:

-> means traffic from client to server
<- means traffic from server to client

-> f:\cvs
-> <user>
-> <strange chars>

I tried the following, as in the readme:

1. Put Impersonation (from regedit) to 0.
2. Grant to the SYSTEM account the rights to "Create a token object".
3. Put SystemAuth=no on CVSROOT\config and wirte a passwd file with
aline reading:

But the result is always the same.
Note on point 3: in this case the ntserver authenticates users against
the password file (if user is not there, it does not get access rights),
but pserver still negate access.

I see that: the server is listening on the TCP port, but it can not
authenticate the user.
Pserver subsystem ignores the authentication methods.

How can I come out from this?
i.e. how can I make the pserver authenticate users?

Thank you for the kind attention.
