I'm struggling to implement CVSNT ACL with SSPI protocol. I have following fileatr.xml in my repository, consisting of single file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <acl user="cvs-external"  branch="EXTERNAL_BRANCH">
      <all />
    <acl user="cvs-users">
      <all />

Also I created a group file which looks like this:
cvs-external: user1
cvs-user: user2

Basically I want to allow full access for the user group "cvs-external" only for EXTERNAL_BRANCH, and for the group "cvs-users" - full access to anything.
When I try to checkout with user2, I get the message:
"cvs checkout: cannot open CVS/Entries for reading: No such file or directory"

What am I doing wrong? What should I do to achieve branch security for a group of users?
