If you strated out new now then:
- Why did you choose as server? It is a rather old version
and you should be better of with the latest stable which is build

- WEhy did you choose WinCvs 1.20???? That is about 4-5 years old by
now and is in no way a supported version anywhere. Do yourself a
favour and get the latest release instead!

Looks like a malformed CVSROOT, should be:
  :pserver:manjunathm at
  :pserver:manjunathm at
