F-ssh and cvs checkout - cannot start server via rsh

I have just downloaded WinCvs 1.2 and installed it on my Windows 2000 box.
Whenever I start up WinCvs, I get "TCL is *not* available, shell is
disabled".  It seems that TCL is needed in order for WinCvs micros to work.
So I downloaded an ActiveTcl 8.3.3 package from the link that
points to and installed it on the same box (cvs client).  It didn't resolve
the problem.

Also, I am using F-SSH to connect to our remote machine which forwards its
connection to a real CVS server.  I have my CVSROOT set to
":pserver:address@hidden:/cvs/somedir".  When I do a module checkout, it
always says "cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot start server via rsh: No such
file or directory".

What did I do wrong?  Is the path I put for the module is incorrect or the
ssh thing is not working at all -- I can login to that remote machine to do
a command line cvs checkout.  There is a /cvs/somedir/somefile on that
remote machine and that's what I put for WinCvs as the module name and path.

If you have any suggestions, I would very much appreciate it!

Thanks in advance!
