Get a Windows ssh client like PuTTY 
( and set it up 
so that you can ssh to your cvs repository host without username/password entry 
(using RSA keys).  Obviously, the server will have to have ssh installed to 
accept such requests.

Then, in WinCVS, in the Admin/Preferences dialog, set your authentication to 
ssh (in the ssh settings, enter the fully qualified path to the plink.exe 
program which uses the settings you've configured under putty.exe).  In 
additional options, use -ssh.

Be aware that WinCVS 1.3b7 has some problems with ssh access in that it doesn't 
properly close the command dialogs it opens to interact with the server.  All 
operations function correctly, but one has to manually close the intermediate 
dialog before WinCVS can proceed.  Use WinCVS 1.3b6 instead.

Can WinCVS be made to use ssh to authenticate?
