Now I have updated my PC to 2054, server still 2.0.38:
cvs logout
***** CVS exited normally with code 0 *****
Logging out of :sspi:bosse at cvsserver:2401:/PC

cvs login
Logging in to :sspi:bosse at cvsserver:2401:/PC
[80090311] No authority could be contacted for authentication.

Now changing WinCvs back to 2.0.51d:
cvs login

***** CVS exited normally with code 0 *****

Logging in to :sspi:bosse at cvsserver:2401:/PC

Successful login!
