Sorry, but I don't know WinCVS at all, I am not a Windows user.

IMHO, Windows users are expecting simplicity.  Drop off as much as
external tools as possible.

You should bind your CVS pserver to  Create one (or more,
depending on what you need) account on the system and give it a shell
that does nothing but wait for a keystroke to quit (code it if you
can't find one).

One the client side, you should use Putty, which is a very popular
open-source SSH client for Windows.  Create and save a session
corresponding to the server, which include a local tunnel:
    2401 ->
You could also disable TTY allocation, this would prevent wasting
reseources on the server side.

Go to the registry, and save this connection to a .reg file you
will send to your client.  Provide them the login/password in a
secure way.  Give them the URL of Putty, and a small explanation.

Tell them to install the .reg file and run Putty whenever they want
to access the pserver.  They will use localhost as a pserver
