[cvsnt] Having trouble connecting to CVSNT server using SSPI

It's always best to do administration tasks on the command line.  WinCVS
includes the CVSNT command line client - but you probably want to
upgrade to the latest release.

That format is deprecated.  Use :sspi:

This format will use your current username and password automagically.

If you really need to use the Administator account then you need to do
cvs login:
cvs -d :sspi:DOMAIN\Administrator at login

Do not put passwords in the CVSROOT, you will be promted for a password
if needed.

The likely problem is that the Administrator user CVS is picking up is
not the DOMAIN Administrator (or vice versa).
