My company recently started to use CVSNT. The CVS server is on a station of Intel Xeon E5320 1.86G + 3.5G RAM  running Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server SP2. 

Use SSPI protocol 
All users have full access right to the repository directory.
All users have CVS "admin" right.

There is no problem of login and checkout, suggesting the network setting is right.

When to import module on client, for example:

cvs -d :sspi:Tao.Chang at sbs2003:2401:/cvs_data import -m "Import part of VTES software to build up a tutorial module." tutorial CPT V01_000_000_TTRL

Got an error message: 

cvs [import aborted]: writing to server socket (bytes=5120 data=OK): error -1

We traced the network activities, the connection seems successful. The issue seems to do with file/directory access privilege checking on the server. We have already granted all rights to the potential users on CVSNT repository directory and sub-directories. 

The issue does not exist when the CVSNT server running on a Windows XP SP3 station with the same server settings.

Anything I missed? 

You help are appreciated.
