[cvsnt] Ubuntu Edgy - cvsnt installed but no sserver available

Thanks for the reply David.

I checked the supported protocols and sserver is not listed, even though I ran
the dbkp -install for the cvsnt-protocol-sserver.deb file. Is there another way
I should be installing sserver?

sspi is one of the available protocols but when I try to use it I get invalid
user, password or domain.

I installed winbind using apt-get install winbind

Then uncommented the winbind entry in the PServer file. I'm kind flying by the
seat of my pants here, so any and all advice is appreciated.

You're running it on port 2222?

At a guess the package has been compiled without sserver support.
# cvs info
To see what protocols are available.

If sserver is available, have you set up the certificates too?

Yes. Setup winbind in /etc/cvsnt/PServer
