I am new to CVS and I try to install WinCVS on a PC. The server is an OSX machine and it is working perfectly with MacCVS Pro client. But, on the PC, it seem that the ssh connection is impossible with the server. For example, when I try to do a simple "check-out" command, I obtain this message from the console:

------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------
CVSROOT: address@hidden:/cvsrep (ssh authentication)
cvs checkout -P /cvsrep/dynastrip (in directory C:\Documents and Settings\davigagn\Desktop\Dynastrip) cvs checkout: warning: unrecognized response `'ssh' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

cvs checkout: warning: unrecognized response `operable program or batch file.

cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)

***** CVS exited normally with code 1 *****

There is no `ssh` command on Windows. You must use PLINK.EXE, available at:

to manage the ssh connection. Note that you must either use a keypair or use PuTTY to log in to the repository server, or plink will fail for not having keys.
