What happens here is that plink prompts you for the password. Since stdin and stdout are redirected, the password is sent to the CVS server, and it is not possible for you to enter the password.

You can either

1) set up Plink to use PKA (requires that you run the Pageant application, see the PuTTY doc for details)

2) switch to using the Plink version distributed with TortoiseCVS (www.tortoisecvs.org) which solves this problem.
