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 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.
