Adding to this I can report the following difference in the client
behaviour:

The versions are as follows:
cvs ver
Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.0.51d (client/server)
Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.0.38 (client/server)

In this case I can run 'everything' I need.

But using 2.5.02 build 2048 on the client side towards the exact same
server:
cvs status -q -- AGIAdmin.cfg (in directory
C:\Engineering\Projects\PC\AGIAdmin\)
[80090311] No authority could be contacted for authentication.

Finally if I switch to a server that is the 'newest' available (cvsnt
using pserver):

cvs ver
Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.0.51d (client/server)
Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.02 (Servalan) Build
2054 (Release Candidate 2) (client/server)

and with the 2048 client:
cvs ver
Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.02 (Servalan) Build
2048 (Release Candidate 2) (client/server)
Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.02 (Servalan) Build
2054 (Release Candidate 2) (client/server)

Finally 2048 on both server and client and using :sspi: as in the
2.0.38 server case:
Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.02 (Servalan) Build
2048 (Release Candidate 2) (client/server)
Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.02 (Servalan) Build
2048 (Release Candidate 2) (client/server)
 
So there is definitely a problem with the 2048 towards older servers
using :sspi:.
What gives?
