[cvsnt] can't add users (The dreaded Can't authenticate error)

Hi Sven,
it was my firewall program, not the windows firewall where you can add cvs 
port (usually 2401) as an exception. Some firewalls programs don't give this 
option and they shield all ports or most, disabling CVS and causing this 
error. I had to uninstall my firewall program, disabling the firewall 
program may not help because the ports are closed early on at startup.
