What version of cvs client are  you using?  What I've found is that
cvs 1.11 accepts the port format, but fails to use it. It actually uses it in 1.11p1 and 1.11.2

In other words:  address@hidden:1000:c:/cvsroot doesn't work.  Again,
what would be correct?

The `:' after the 1000 isn't allowed by the new CVSROOT format. Everything between the third `:' of a pserver spec and the first `/' is read as a port number. That's why I recommended trying to remove the drive spec (`c:') on the NT server side. Not sure that's possible, but I haven't heard too many complaints about it, so I've been assuming it is.
