Here's an example of an old setup we used without problems:

The repository is hosted on a Solaris NFS mounted drive.
 - Solaris clients may mount the repository for editing/cvs.
 - NT clients can not map the repository locally. They must use rsh/ssh/pserver.
 - NT clients can map the Solaris *sandbox* for editing, but not for cvs.
