WinCVS actually uses CVSNT client by default (CVSNT is open source but 
optimised for Windows servers and clients).  

It has a separate mailing list for reporting problems too, and if you use CVSNT 
for your server (Unix,Windows,Mac,Linux) then it supports more other (more 
secure?) protocols.

Mailing list and download information is available at:

Look at areas where "connection refused" is discussed. Consider looking
at your /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny files. Try to 

  telnet 2401

while you are directly connected to the repository server machine and then
again when you are on your client.
