Thank you very much for your assistance.  Here is what I found. 

After fiddling with the sspi protocol and getting similar errors..........
frustration sent me looking for some straws to pull at. I actually found a
couple -- in the server settings tab of the CVSNT control panel I found some
completely bogus settings in both the "Run as user" and "default domain"
fields. I cleaned this up and all seems to work fine -- even got pserver
working. I have no idea how these fields got this crazy data -- it was
probably me, but so long ago I don't remember.

Thanks again for your help,

GoMar Gordo

Try sspi - it just uses your windows id, so you are already logged in,

If you usually use:
cvs -d :local:c:/repo co module

Then use:
cvs -d :sspi:localhost:/repo co module

Do not specify any password - the password comes from your existing logon to

If you still cannot get it working then run cvsdiag and send me the results
(don't sent it to the group as attachments and large posts are rejected).
