Ok. This is normal :pserver: syntax. "username" must be defined in the
CVSROOT/passwd file
on the server.

I am wondering that this should have worked with CVSNT 2.0.X.!? For
:pserver: protocol
the name "otherdomain\username" must then be defined in the passwd file. If
this is
not the case, it cannot work; but if this name is defined you should test,
the login works when you escape the "\" character:
cvs -d :pserver:otherdomain\\username at server:/projects login
