Thanks for your guidance.

I have installed cvsnt in win2000.  When I connected through
TortoiseCVS from a windows client using SSPI, it did connect and I was
able to do checkin/checkout.  However, my basic requirement is that
while connecting it should ask for password.  Is it possible?

Thanks again,
