We started down this path but couldn't get it working on Windows with
cygwin ssh. (Server is a Red Hat box, though.) Is there a cookbook
somewhere that explains how to make that scenario work?

For other tunneling (eg. X) I've been using the latest PuTTY, which seems
to work pretty well. Has anyone set up a Windows CVS client using PuTTY?

First, remember that you're not really tunneling with CVS the same way you're tunneling with X. The PuTTY suite provides plink, which has no interface or terminal integration and integrates very nicely with CVS. It can use PuTTY sessions and shares the cache of host keys in the registry, uses pageant, etc. Most of our Windows users use TortoiseCVS (, which integrates a customized version of plink.
