Fabio, that's rather an odd thing to be doing.

- SSPI uses your Windows authentication, so you should probably be using something like :sspi:htsxppx0:/CVSROOT - you don't need to pass a username, and :2401 is the default port;

- If you're using SSPI, you should never need to login, you should just be able to start using the other commands;

- Is your repository genuinely called CVSROOT?  It seems like a very odd name.  How have you set it up?

Also, could you tell us a little more about your network?  For example, are your CVS client and server machines both in the same Windows domain?

                - Peter
