-------original message------------
I am hoping that someone might be able to help me. My customer can't do without a GUI to work with cvs. I am not knowledgeable with either wincvs or cvs. Anyway, I get the following error when trying to click on the "Add Selected" button in wincvs. (The address@hidden is not what I have entered. I changed it here for security reasons).
cvs add testz.php (in directory C:\ijobs\cvs\)
cvs add: warning: unrecognized response `Password:
' from cvs server
cvs add: warning: unrecognized response address@hidden's password:
' from cvs server
cvs add: warning: unrecognized response `Password:
' from cvs server
cvs [add aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)

*****CVS exited normally with code 1*****

In the WinCVS preferences, I have:
        Enter the CVSROOT
        SSH Server
        Check for an alternate rsh name (checked)

I know they can login to the server with SSH manually. Actually, I am testing it with my account.

Yes, but when you log in to the account, you have to enter username/password, don't you? What you need to do is set up plink with a key for the account that you wish to log in with. You will need to consult the plink instructions/manual to determine how to do this. Note that you will then need to take appropriate measures to guard that key, which will be stored in plaintext in a file on your Windows machine.
