WinCVS is a GUI layer that calls CVSNT client to communicate with the
server.  The cvs or cvsnt client is what communicates with the server.  

If you have cvsservice and cvslock running then you are running cvsnt
server and you should contact the cvsnt newsgroup/mailing list:

If you need to communicate with CVS or CVSNT server then the best
technique is to do what WinCVS does - call the CVS or CVSNT client.

If you are writing a commercial application and using CVSNT then you
should join the partner programme:
