Tortoise made the mistake of shipping a development version of CVSNT with one of their recent releases. That version of CVSNT no
longer supports the :ntserver: protocol. You'll either have to get a current
stable release of CVSNT (recommended!!!) or change your
authentication scheme to :sspi: (usually just a matter of search&replacing
:ntserver: for :sspi:).

Hope this helps.
