The error message you quote is indicative of the loss of a dll, in this case the ntserver_protocol.dll
from the client or the server CVS folder.
You don't state which client program you are using, but you will need a version of CVSNT plus
this dll on your path in order for the ntserver protocol to work OK.

If your experiments are done on the command line then type:
cvs -ver
in order to establish the version you have on your path.
If the result is anything other than the build you indicate then trace down the path tree because you
have a competing cvs somewhere before the correct one.

And you don't need to mess with the password file when you use sspi or ntserver, the passwd file is
only used for the pserver protocol.

Subject: [cvsnt] Automatic login

I'm using CVS NT Service (Build 57f) on my server and am having no luck in my clients using their domain login to connect to the repository.  Both the server and client are Windows based machines; the server is NT Server w/ SP6a.

On the server I have entered the user's domain login name using 'cvs passwd -a Jim'

On the client side I have 'CVSROOT = :ntserver:cvsserver:/repository'
            I have also tried sspi in place of ntserver and I have done 'Jim at cvsserver' with both

When I attempt a cvs command I get and error "access method not supported by this port of CVS".  Theserver and client are on the same domain so the firewall shouldn't be an issue.  I can get this to work using the pserver method then using 'cvs login', but I'm trying to make using source control as painless as possible for the users.

                        Thanks in advance
                        Jim Lowell
