Don't -- use ssh. If you set up your router/firewall correctly, you and
whomever you grant an account to can access your CVS server from
anywhere on the Internet. It's *really* useful.
I wrote a Perl convenience script 'cvsenv' that I can launch from Bash
that sets up the client end of things. I also figured out how to use
Unix groups to isolate multiple CVS repositories on one server; the Perl
script is called 'dvs'. You can download both of them here:

I use Cygwin with DOS line endings and the Cygwin CVS client.
Everything works fine.

I very much doubt it. I've used/ been using DOS, Windows NT, GNU/Linux,
BSD, DJGPP, Cygwin, and CVS for several years new, and any CVS problems
I've had were always my fault.
