 use :sspi:yourlogin at cvsserver:/repo
Then *once* do a cvs login and supply the password.

Use the Windows scheduler and create the scheduled task via the
Control Panel "Scheduled Tasks" function. Here you will be able to set
which account the task will run as and enter that account password as
well. Then SSPI will work just fine as :sspi:cvsserver:/repo
