Hi Bo Berglund,


I have installed CVSNT on our Windows 2003 Server (terminal server
located out of my network w/ IP address of and
configured everything according 

to your installation tips (my repository will be '/Test').  On my
system, I have WinCVS installed.


I went to 'Remote' menu in WinCVS->'Create a New Repository'-> Set my

By the way, I am logged into my PC (w/ WinCVS) as 'Administrator'.  Port
2401 has been opened up by my admin.  But all I get is this error

cvs [init aborted]: authorization failed: server
rejected access to /Test for user administrator

The thing is that 'Administrator' has access to the /Test directory.  


But when I tried setting my Remote Repository on a Windows 2003 Machine
that's within my network, it works perfectly fine.  Here's the CVSROOT:

VSRepo' where 'psnbtest26' is the computer name.  CVSNT is installed on

network machine (psnbtest26).  


Since I only have WinCVS installed on my machine, do I need to install
CVSNT also in order to establish an sspi connection to the CVSNT server
(the one out of network)?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.
