Client and Server

On the Linux side, I have never had to set up a CVS service. I believe CVS is a client application. I do have a CVS login (cvsuser), and all my clients log in using ssh: My clients are on the same system where the CVS repository exists and external systems to that.

export CVSROOT=:ext:cvsuser@some_server_name:/home/cvsuser/SRC_TREE
export CVS_RSH=ssh

These go into every clients .bashrc file.

I still have to get help with setting up ssh trust, so I don't have to give the password everytime, but at least I can use CVS.

Now as to the client on Windows, you'll need to go look for something that will talk to CVS. You can try http://www.tortoisecvs.org/. But test it out on archiving and then updating Microsoft documents, like Word, Excel, and so on.

To set up your CVS repository on Linux, have a look at the info here - I used it the first time I had to set up a CVS repository.

For Windows clients, I've used WinCVS and TortoiseCVS as well as using the CVS integration with Eclipse. I'd suggest trying them and see what works for you.
