With SSPI you are not supposed to log in at all.
But it supports login and when done it verifies the login against one
of two possible databases:
1) The domain (Active Directory on W2K)
2) The local server PC user list

If your server is not on the domain and/or your workstation is not on the
domain then I think you will have to set up for local authentication and
then all users will need to have an account at the server PC. I think that
they also need to have logged on to that PC at least once to create their
profiles on that server.

I am using SSPI in several places, both with and without domains, and it
works satisfactorily. I also expose one of my CVSNT servers on the Internet
for remote access (only using SSPI again). In that case the rule is to
do a login for each repository on the server via the remote connection.
This will store the user credetials in the local Registry (HKCU hive) and
this will be used the next time the same repository is accessed with the
same username setting.
Works like clock...

Well I have been at this for a while.  I have been having problems
loging in to CVSNT.  It is a strange one here.  I tried pserver as well
as SSPI but I get the same results.

Some important information.
CVSNT server is running on a W2K Pro workstation on a W2K domain.
I was running pserver under W2K Pro workstation on a NT4 domain before
and it worked.

This is what happens.

I can login as Domain Administrator, locally and remotely.
I can login as myself if I am login Windows locally at the time.  I
cannot login as myself if I am login to Windows as Administrator.

I can never login as myself remotely.

Here is a dump of a failed attempt.
Microsoft Windows 2000 [Version 5.00.2195]

G:\>set cvsroot=:sspi:postalcow:/pakon

G:\>cvs logon
Logging in to :sspi:PWolter at postalcow:2401:/pakon
CVS password: *******
cvs [login aborted]: unrecognized auth response from postalcow: cvs
[server aborted]: Authentication failed

I have tried CVSNT 2.0.2, 2.0.4, and 2.1.1 with the same results.
I also made sure that the client and server were running the same
Any ideas, I can't give my Administrator password to everyone.
Maybe is some permission that Administrator has but I wouldn't know
what!  I can look into that tomorrow.
