For best use of cvs/cvsnt you need to forward port 2401 to the server and use one of the built in protocols (pserver,sspi,sserver,ntserver,gserver). Alternatively you can install cygwin SSH which installs a Unix ssh daemon and use that. Note however that because of the way the NT security works all repository access will be done as 'System' if you go that route. On another note, use ssh v2 if security is an issue - v1 has a number of attacks against it and is virtually obsolete now. Tony
