RE: sspi not working

This question is probably better suited to the CVSNT list:

Note: version 2.0.46 is a little old - I recommend that you upgrade both
the server and the client to 2.0.51d:

Port 2401 is only used by the pserver protocol.

The advantage of the SSPI protocol is it's integration with the active
directory users and groups.  However the sserver protocol can also be
used if you are more interested in security.

Subject: sspi not working

I have set up a CVSNT server (Version 2.0.46) on a Windows-2003 box, 
opened up its default port 2401 through the firewall, 
and now I am trying to remotely access this box from 
a Fedora Core-2 Linux machine. 
Using the pserver-protocol works fine. However, 
when using the sspi-protocol, I always get this error message:

$ cvs -d:sspi:<my-user-id>@<server-ip-address>:2401/cvsroot login
cvs login: Unknown method (`sspi') in CVSROOT.
cvs [login aborted]: Bad CVSROOT:

What do I have to do to get the sspi-protocol 
(which I was told is safer) to work?
