I am doing something similar, but have no problem, other than
CVS being quite slow over my 100 Mbps network, though this has been
more typical when I run the same "cvs update" command from remote internet
I verified the command worked on the Linux pserver, by issuing the same
command there, then invoking the command from the Windows98SE machine
running Cygwin 1.3.7.
I also got a bunch of updates, which I suspect may have been due to
DOS vs Unix text file handling... (I try to stick with Unix newlines,
but I think WinCvs will convert them to DOS format if I invoke it
from a DOS COMMAND shell vs a Cygwin Bash shell.
Here's the command I issue on both Linux and Windows:
cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvs update -d -P
