Can't connect to CVS SSH pserver

I am trying to follow the instructions posted at
to set up a CVS pserver tunnelled over SSH.

My server is Linux, so I adapted the server configuration
from the instructions.  I am attaching the commands that
I executed in case you need them as a reference.

I am using a Windows 2000 machine as a client.
It has the cygwin package with perl, regex, cvs, and ssh installed on it.

To test the configuration, I went to a DOS prompt,
changed the directory to C:\cygwin\bin, and executed
this command:
  ssh address@hidden -L open

I got these messages:
Could not create directory '/home/Neil Aggarwal/.ssh'.
The authenticity of host ' (' can't be
RSA key fingerprint is 77:12:5a:f6:36:c3:40:e7:e8:cc:69:f4:31:7b:f9:13.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
Failed to add the host to the list of known hosts (/home/Neil

I checked on the server and there is this file in /tmp
prw-------    1 cvs      cvs             0 Jan 31 23:33 filexbkPbz

I then loaded another DOS prompt, changed the directory to c:\cygwin\bin,
and executed:
  cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/testproject login

I got this message:
(Logging in to address@hidden)
CVS password:

When I typed in the password, I get this message:
cvs [login aborted]: recv() from server localhost: Connection reset by peer

Can you offer any help?
