If I don't use my username how is the server supposed to know who I am?
Yes, I'm going cross-domain and it works fine when WinCVS uses CVSNT to do
the same thing.  In fact, I double-checked the command-line from WinCVS to
make sure I was doing things properly.

I have to login otherwise I can't get access.  The server is setup to
authenticate against our NT logins. 

If I'm not supposed to do the above two things than how would I connect to
the server?
