You need to convince CVS to use public key authentication. Are you using the
cygwin ssh? In that case, generate a public/private key pair using
ssh-keygen. The private key goes (probably already is) in the ~/.ssh
directory; copy the public key over to the ssh server and rename/append to
~/.ssh/authorized_keys. If you have generated ssh2 compatible keys, that
file should be named authorized_keys2. Proof of the pudding: if you can ssh
in without specifying password from the shell, WinCVS should be able to do
it, too. From the shell, debug using ssh -v.
