  I already followed the steps in the link you suggested before my original 
  post. I set the Certificate file and Private Key file parameters in the Plugin 
  tab of the control panel for sserver to the default ca.pem file that comes 
  with the CVSNT installation. I set the Authentication to Passwords only.
  I did try to do a cvs login but just get the same message as before about 
  wrong version number when I do this.
  Any other ideas what might be causing this?
