This worked for me , i used both wincvs as well as smart cvs ,i was struck 
at auth level.
You need to setup the cvs in inetd. The wincvs can communicate to the cvs
Thanks to every body.
Some thing like this.

/etc/services :
cvspserver 2401/tcp
/etc/inetd.conf :
cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/bin/cvs cvs
--allow-root=/home/group/CVS pserver
