I have CVSNT working perfectly fine with PServer.  I dont use sspi or
anything else, just pserver.  So the problem is that sometimes, when you go
into cmd.exe and create a user, is there some special stuff you need to do
to allow the user to be able to download from the repo?  I mean, i did the
following to add users into my repository:

  > set cvsroot = :pserver:momad at
  > cvs login
  > [it asks for password ****]
  > cvs passwd -a -r cvsuser testuser
  > [it asks for password ****]
  > [it asks for password ****]
  > [done]

 ... and i repeat that process to add users to the repo.  But when i go
into turtoisecvs to download the cvs under the different usernames that i
created, it returns with the error message: "pserver rejected access to /cxm
for user {username}." for some users, not all of the users, just some.  very
strange thing...  I just wanted to know if anyone had problems like these
before and if they know of a workaround or if im missing something in my
user adding.

If anyone can please help me resolve this it will be greatly appreciated.
Its not something of major importance but it will help out greatly.  Thanks
in advance to anyone who puts in some input.

By the way, the usernames that dont work used to work fine a month or so
ago... and i deleted them and added them again, so is there a place where
cvsnt saves pserver users besides CVSROOT/passwd?
