It helps to understand that part of CVS too. CVSNT started as a Windows port
of Unix CVS, so usually all that applies to Unix CVS also applies to CVSNT.
Here's my favourite:

You might want to take a look at the links collected here:

Although this has not directly got anything to do with your question, please
read (and understand):


:ntserver: does not require an explicit login because it reuses your Windows
login for authentication.
The client executable that comes with WinCvs actually IS CVSNT (although a
quite outdated one - but it could simply be replaced).
Also, there is no client-only installer of CVSNT AFAICT.

Hope this helps.
