No, but across the internet people have had better results by specifying the user (I think it tends to use your local computer/domain login if you don't, which is unlikely to have enough trust). > 3.

If you would need to login by username/password to view a network share, then you'll probably need to with cvs. > 4. Does one have to set up the user in the passwd file?

That's internal to the implementaiton of SSPI and I can't really answer. I think sspi tends to use the full domain\user syntax but there are cases where it'll authenticate anyway... just not sure what the conditions are. Tony
