I'm not sure I'm getting you at all on this.

1. All three machines are members of the same domain.
2. All three machines have each person login as their domain account,
not administrator
3. I cannot login to the CVS server using any account OTHER than my
own from my machine or I get an error

Here's a log of all of the tries from my machine in DOS.  I run
windows 2000 sp4:

--- Had to snip this because the cvsnt list has a limit of 8 k --

----- My reply (that bounced because of the snipped part ----

If you just send me your posts in private you cannot expect much
It is rather much better for you to send them to the list instead.
I will see them there since I am checking the newsserver regularly and
others will also see them with perhaps a bit more ideas than I have.

My take is that SSPI *always* worked for me without exception.
The only time I had problems was when using pserver and that was
caused by the fact that the *path to* the repository folders was
locked down
even though the actual repository folders themselves had enough access
priviliges for the intended operations.
