CVSNT ( works as a network-accessible CVS server on Windows platforms. You don't need a Unix box.

Windows port can use a local-disk repository, but it still can't serve
projects from that repository to other machines. In general, if you want to have a network-accessible CVS repository, you must run the CVS server on a
Unix box.

Is WinCVS only a client for accessing a CVS server or can it also function
as a server (repository) itself?  I'm currently using it as a client to
access a server remotely but am unsure if it has more capabilities. I think that, in general, when we refer to CVS server software we referring just to
the software that is downloaded from  Correct?
