A *really long shot*: What happens if you rename the pserver_protocol.dll to pserver_protocol.dll.old and then make a copy of the sspi_protocol.dll with the name pserver_protocol.dll? These two are very similar in that they can accept the user at server part of the CVSROOT string. But I guess that the pserver part of the string will break this idea? /Bo On Sun, 01 Sep 2002 23:32:45 -0400, Avery Regier <ajregier at earthlink.net> wrote: >Hello, > >I am attempting to get CVSNT to work well with the Eclipse development >environment for my team to use.
