In my experience, the client works fine from windows.  the server works fine
for a local repository.  i'm not sure how you'd get the application to
daemonize and listen for connections under windows.... maybe tcpserver
compiled under cygwin?

You might try for a (albeit older) version of CVS designed to
serve from NT.
