I am trying to checkout the branch code and build it but it's not working.
There is some authorization issue which I have mentioned below. I don't know
why this is happening. :(

I was able to successfully checkout the branch code two days before and
build it. Also if I try using the same login name (gchhabra) to checkout the
branch code using command prompt then it's working fine.

cvs co -r TC_SIT1-RB_06112008 (This works fine when connected to repository
using login 'gchhabra')

Error Report:
F:\TC_CIT_BuildArea>ant -f tc-cit-build.xml

Buildfile: tc-cit-build.xml


[delete] Deleting directory

[cvs] Empty password used - try 'cvs login' with a real password

[cvs] cvs [checkout aborted]: authorization failed: server XX.XX.XX.XX

               command="checkout -r TC_SIT1-RB_06112008" />

We have one build area on the same machine on which the CVS repository is
present. The environment that I am trying to build above is on a different
machine and is handled by one more guy. Is there something missing or
something unintentionally modified? I am not able to find out anything
wrong. :(

Can anyone please guide me on this?
