I tried just setting cvsroot(with sspi protocol) and executing a checkout operation without login however CVS gave error " cvs [checkout aborted]: Error reading from server cscsbilifecvs: -1: Unknown err". As soon as I logged in and again tried the checkout operation the error vanished. However once logged in after that even if I closed my command prompt then also CVS gave no error and the checkout operation was completed successfully. So probably once login is needed when you start your session for getting connected to server and thereafter its not required. Any comments?

Best Regards,

SSPI almost never needs login (there are some special cases but most
users won't see these), and doesn't need the username if you're not
logging in as a different user.
