Yes, you are right. It's working if I using my production CVSNT server.

But I have also running a CVSNT test server (vcl134) where I check any
CVS tool releases. I running in this problem when I use the client and
the server on the same machine (vcl134). And yes, you are right if I use
cvs -d :sspi:user at vcl134:/sw-aut I see the same error as with :ext:.

At Microsoft I found the following:

The 80090308 return code maps to SEC_E_INVALID_TOKEN, which means that
a security token was found to be improperly formatted.

But I have no idea why it's working without username,
and NOT working with username (even when I force the domain name).
