Ok, that's about the missing .cvspass which is created after first login.
Windows = Documents ...\user\.cvspass
Linux = /home/user/.cvspass

hm, maybe he could not handle the pserver protocol because no cvs(nt)
in sight for ant script ?!

Are you able to load a Repository Location from that machine
in CVS Perspective via Eclipse ??

Maybe a simple typo in the end ?

Assuming you are running with Windows - i believe you just need either 
if using

-> cvsnt  = the cvsnt.exe, and the relevant *.dll's .There is one for 
every protocol, pserver in your circumstance. just grab those files from 
  a machine where cvsnt is installed (you don't have to install the 
whole server stuff) and put them together in a folder.
-> cvs = i think all stuff is packed in cvs.exe
Sorry haven't used cvs with Windows

It might even be possible talking to a cvs server with cvsnt files on 
path !?, haven't tried that.

you may also write an ant script that runs in and outside of eclipse.

ant-jar files listed there, but what's the directory with the cvs files you refer to? ...

Ant|Preferences and 'Add Folder' with either all of those cvsnt files or
the folder which contains cvs.exe

Good luck!!
