Have you been able to do a cvs checkout on the commandline? What command did you use and how did you supply the password?
What does your cvsroot look like? What protocol are you using, pserver?
What have you tried? Did you try the cvspass task or the passfile attribute of the cvs task or putting the password in cvsroot like :pserver:USER:PASSWORD@server:/path/to/cvsroot ? [ November 07, 2006: Message edited by: Carol Enderlin ]
