Hi Scott

Some things to try.
I assume the name of your server is "files"? Is this correct?

If so
Have you tried getting the user to login using their domain password.
ie
cvs -d :sspi:files:/cvsrepo login
or
cvs -d :sspi:username at files:/cvsrepo login

and then try
cvs -d :sspi:files:/cvsrepo login
or
cvs -d :sspi:username at files:/cvsrepo ls


Is the temporary directory set to be C:/Data/cvstemp within the CVSNT 
applet?


Cheers
Mikew

I have created a repository on C:\Data\cvsrepo, and the CVSNT applet was able to initialize it.  I also created a temporary directory in C:\Data\cvstemp.  The members of my software group have been given Full rights to both of these directories.  The repository name as set in the CVSNT applet is /cvsrepo.  Both the server and lockdir services are running.

The server appears to be running correctly, and I gave the users in my software group full control for the C:\Data\cvstemp directory and C:\Data\cvsrepo directories on my server.  The repository name is just /cvsrepo.
