OK, I see your point.

One more question: (honestly, this is the last one!!!)

Do you know (sorry for my stuid questions) is it possible to limit the
remote access to CVSNT to certain users?
(I want to put CVSNT on our (file-,database-...)-server where everyone
from our company has access to.
Using sspi that would mean (as far as I know) that everybody has the
right to work with the CVS. But only half of the people are using CVS.
And only half of the developers will use remote access.

Can I configure CVSNT to 
1.) refuse access to CVS for some users that have user acounts on the
2.) allow remote access to only a limited set of the remaining people?
(All the rest may then only connect when they are within the LAN)

Thanks for all your helpful and very quick responses!
