I just tried a new feature within the latest (non-stable) build of cvsnt 
which is an ext wrapper for the SSPI protocol.  Since SSPI isn't built into 
Eclipse... of course, this is only if you want the SSPI protocol.

I think I can get you started...
1) you need to download the zip file for the latest build Tony Hoyle (I 
believe he wrote this) said that this piece is stable as far as he is aware 
2) extract the extnt.exe and extnt.ini files
3) throw those 2 files into your server install and your client install of 
cvsnt... you don't have to install all the files onto the client but I went 
ahead and just copied over my cvsnt program directory onto a directory on my 
client... the extnt.exe program uses some of the libraries.
4) configure the ini file to match your server.
5) you then need to setup Eclipse to use the ext protocol and point it to 
the extnt.exe file.

The connect string should look something like this:
extnt.exe  <hostname> -l <username> cvs server

Good luck,
