If you do this you are *bypassing* the CVSNT server and might just as
well only instell the client.

Have you checked that the Windows Firewall is open for port 2401?
This must be manually done (by adding an exception to the blocking
rules for port 2401)

Not! You should enter the *name* of the repository as configured in
the control panel.

cvs -d :sspi:localhost:/Repository ls
would have worked fine...

But to do so you have to start using the server...
Now you are going directly to the repository files with the client...
