Did the security level on your server change? How about the IP address?
Pull up a command shell and type 'p4 set'. Get rid of the environment
setting from your startup files. You can also try deleting your tickets
folder (~/.p4tickets by default). Do all of this while P4V is shut down.
Restart P4V and try again. You can also try 'p4 login' from the command
line and see how that behaves for you.

Subject: [p4] vexing p4v problem on mac os

Hi all,

I have been an avid user and proponent of perforce for the past 7 years. 
But I'm currently experiencing some bizarre behavior which I would call a
severe bug - although I can't find any info about it with a google search.

The problem is that on mac os p4v, password protected users simply do not
work for me.  p4v constantly complains about the password with a
never-ending barrage of dialogs.  I know that I'm entering it correctly, I
figured that out after about the 100th time.  Command line p4 with PASSWD
env variable and windows p4v work fine - no problems, smooth sailing.

Any idea what's going on?
