What version of cvs, ssh, and WinCVS are you using?

I'm using Cygwin's ssh (ver. OpenSSH_3.0.2p1), WinCVS (ver.
beta 6) which uses it's own cvs (and it can't use other version of
cvs), and also have Cygwin's cvs for use in a terminal (useful for
testing).  It works very well with settings close to what you
describe, I don't have a "Port" option, but perhaps you refer to the
"Settings..." set of options, where I have set the complete path to

To make things work you may have to test each part by itself.

First test ssh, you should be able to login to your server without
having to type a password (or ssh's key passphrase).  WinCVS doesn't
expect you to use a password, and if one is needed, the prompt comes
out in a minimized terminal which is easy to miss (and WinCVS will
seem like it's doing nothing, like the infinite loop you describe.)

Hope this helps.
