Greetings. Thanks a lot for sending the links to your instructions. They are a little out of date, but helped a lot! Most excellent. I uninstalled and reinstalled CVSNT according to your instructions. Here's where I ran into a problem.. set cvsroot=:sspi:<computername>:/TEST cvs passwd -a <account name> Mine looked like this: set cvsroot=:sspi:CVS:/test - this seemed to work. cvs passwd -a remote1 - gave me the following error message: cvs passwd: CVSROOT "sspi:CVS/test" must be an absolute pathname CVS [passwd aborted]: Bad CVSROOT. I am not on a domain. I have a user account named remote1 on the machine. Any suggestions most appreciated.
