Arthur -

A server can authenticate a user as a local account.  This has nothing to do
with a trust relationship.  The usual way to do this is to specify
MACHINENAME\username instead of DOMAINNAME\username.

It actually worked before, with the string as I specified.  

Given that it sounds like you want to be able to use SSPI without the
standard challenge/response dialog prompt to specify the remote account, is
there another protocol I should use to specify I want to logon to a machine
with no domain using one of it's local accounts?

I'll get he version info you requested, I have the old install somewhere.

If the server is not a part of a domain then how can it authenticate the
user?  I don't think a server not in a domain can have a trust
relationship with the an authenticating domain?

Please see this FAQ about questions (and the information to supply):

Without the old and new version numbers including build numbers there is
very little we can understand of your problem, traces of the old and new
versions may also help, as would the cvsdiag dump of the server.

The correct syntax for sspi CVSROOT is:

Note: no password.

Is anyone else having problems with SSPI?

We recently upgraded and now can not login to the server.  

We use the :sspi:username:password at host form of the cvsroot, using a
username and password on the server.  When we do this the user is locked
out after three tries (so we know we are getting to the correct

We're logging onto a server that is not part of a domain, from a client
that is.  The username and password on the client are the same as that
on the domain. 

We've also tried :sspi:servermachinename\username:password at host with no

Any ideas?
