Yes. The PuTTY documentation
<> includes
everything you should need for the authentication and connection end of
things. I'm using WinCVS Beta 6 (Local Build 1). The 1.2x series
didn't seem to play nice with the PuTTY suite, and more current versions
may also have issues. The only "trick" I can think of is that my
$CVSROOT uses a PuTTY session vs. the real server name.
