I do apologise in advance if this has been asked before, but I couldn't 
find it in the mail archives.

I've installed CVSNT on a Windows XP box at work. It's all working 
swimmingly, aside from one small problem. Authentication, or lack thereof.

We're using TortoiseCVS on the client-side, apparantly using SSPI, and 
the server is set to require encryption. Appropriate users and passwords 
have been set up on the XP box. But it doesn't seem to actually require 
any passwords to be sent, or indeed a valid user for that matter, and 
will quite happily let me check out any file as anybody.

I'm probably being thick, and can't find it in the FAQs etc, but... what 
am I missing?

Apologies and thanks in advance.
