Strange, when I access CVS on my PC I never use anything but my own
login (except for testing). For  example like this on a command
c:\>set CVSROOT=:sspi:polaris:/Bosse
c:\>cvs ls
Listing modules on server


But when I change to the fully qualified server name I get another
c:\>set CVSROOT=:sspi:polaris.agiusa.se:/Bosse
c:\>cvs ls
cvs [ls aborted]: authorization failed: server polaris.agiusa.se
rejected access to /Bosse

As it happens the WorkSpace Viewer sets the computer name without any
possibility of change by the user and it fails.

The extra domain value (agiusa.se) was added by me when I started the
new PC a few months back to reflect the connection with the main
domain. However there is actually no such domain registered anywhere.
Is this the problem?

I can ping my machine using the long name as well as the shorter one.
