Oh. I rather thought that the point of gserver was interoperability.
After all, ntserver and sspi are proprietary, plain password is not on
(nothing on our networks uses plain passwords), and ssh is a hassle.
Gserver was my great hope. 

I'd be willing to test / maintain an ADS version of cvsnt, but I was
hoping that there was a simple "how-to" document on making MIT gserver
work with the CVS server hosted on Win2K. Since there isn't, I will
write one, if I ever get it going... In the meantime if anyone has any
pointers (I've read the MS interoperability white papers) I'd be most
