Hello Venu, how r things in Bangalore? To answer your question,
You can use either WinCVS or CYGWIN tools on you NT box. Here is how we have it implemented at our workplace:

Our CVS products are setup to run using SSH or "Secure SHell," over TCP/IP.  To use the Cygwin version of basically boils down to this:

1) Download and install the Cygwin package ( ).
2) As consistent with what we do around here, grab the whole directory tree "bin" under C:\cygnus\cygwin-b20\H-i586-cygwin32\bin (where c:\cygnus is the directory where you told Cygwin to install itself), and move it to C:\usr\local\bin.
3) Get an SSH client. discusses setup of the SSH client mentioning that one can be found at                                                                   4) Cut and paste the following into a bat file (mine is called cvs_cmd.bat):

set CYGWIN=tty

REM set PATH=c:\cygnus\cygwin-b20\H-i586-cygwin32\bin;c:\usr\local\bin;%PATH%
set PATH=c:\usr\local\bin;%PATH%
set CVS_RSH=c:/usr/local/bin/ssh1.exe
set MAKE_MODE=unix
start cmd
set CVS_RSH=

5) Running this bat should pop up a command window with all of the necessary environment variables set for using CVS.  For a more in depth discussion of CVS and it's commands and operations, click the "CVS Manual" link below.
