This is a pretty standard setup and works well.

What does your CVSROOT access string look like? You probably should use
sspi. Is the user properly set up on the server?

Do you have the "All users are read only" option in the server's cvsnt
control panel checked? If so, you need to explicitly enable write access
using cvsnt ACLs.

What cvsnt ACLs do you have set? 

What NTFS permissions on the repository directories do you have set (at the
server -- assuming the repository is on an NTFS partition)? All cvsnt users
should have access; to facilitate, I'd give all cvsnt users read/write
access and let cvsnt handle access permissions (through its ACLs).
