Moreover, we are using WINDOWS XP not UNIX\LINUX.
You are going to want to subscribe to the CVSNT list and ask most of your questions there.

Why? Just running Windows does not mean that one has to use CVSNT. For
example, I am using CVS (client *and* server) successfully on Windows
with Cygwin.

You are correct.
Considering recent history (past couple of years) however, I believe that those who had made the conscious to use cygwin would have been explicit about doing so.

Gaurav Chhabra, it might be good to be explicit as to which cvs program you are running in future messages, i.e., include the output of `cvs --version` from the server and client. Also explicitly call out if you are using cygwin.

For reasons *not* to use CVSNT, see the posting from Michael Haggerty on
August 20th (Message-ID: <address@hidden>).

(Waiting for Arthur to come up with reasons to use CVSNT ;) )

Though I agree with many/most of Mr. Haggerty's points, I think Arthur has two reasonably strong points he could argue in discussion with _your_ statement: 1) the code and code history (repository) is available for for anyone to examine (currently). 2) CVSNT works easily with windows, as a server, instead of in spite of windows (AFAICT). [Bias: why anyone would _want_ to use windows for a server is still beyond me.]
