So it is a proper server machine :-)

This is NOT what you said you used!
With this configuration your connection string (CVSROOT) should read:
  :sspi:myserver:/Apps  (replace myserver with true PC name)
or if you want to emulate another user:
  :sspi:myname at myserver:/Apps
but then you also first (once) must do a cvs login

>Default domain: MEHTA-CORP
>Force run as user: MEHTA-CORP\cvsadmin

Why??? This setting is NOT the default and if used requires special
administrative configurations in Active Directory!
You should use the default setting "run as client user"

>AV files detected:

Good, then this will not interfere!
>Installed Winsock protocols:

Correct your errors indicated above and try again!
