It seems you have enabled 'Simple' (aka. Broken) file sharing.

This forces all network operations happen as 'guest' - disable it and
it'll work properly.


My os is window XP[version 5.1.2600]
my cvsnt is CVSNT 2.0.51d go with WinCvs2_0_2-3(my previous cvsnt-'s
locksever kept complaining incorrect system information collection, so I gave up

and I go from My computer->View->Folder Options->View->Use simple file
but the problem stay the same:
set CVSROOT=:local:g:\cvs\master
cvs passwd -r my-account-name -a my-alias
password: my-alias-pass
cvs -d :pserver:my-account-name at loalhost:/cvs/master login
password: my-alias-pass
nothing happened here...
cvs -d :pserver:my-account-name at loalhost:/cvs/master status
cvs [server aborted]: can't create temporary directory
C:\TEMP\cvs-serv4036:Permission Denied
the filemon recorded following message:
10:28:30 PM	cvs.exe:4036	CREATE	C:\TEMP\cvs-serv4036	ACCESS DENIED	F9C898\Guest
10:28:31 PM	cvs.exe:4036	OPEN	C:\TEMP	ACCESS DENIED	F9C898\Guest

10:28:31 PM	cvs.exe:4036	OPEN	C:\TEMP\cvs-serv4036	NOT FOUND
