Hi All,
I'm installing CVS on a network server.
It installs fine and can be used by the server to itself.
If I then install the cvsnt client on an XP box I cannot get it to connect.

I suspect it has to do with the fact that the workstations on the network 
all have local logins
i.e. no domain setup. Is this the root of my problem?

I've put in all users in the passwd file. Adjusted config file auth = no.
This is what I get

C:\>cvs -d :sspi: login
Logging in to :sspi:lan at
CVS Password:
cvs [login aborted]: authorization failed: server rejected 
access to /test
