ext with ssh is my favourite for a default setup. 

The server doesn't need any extra setup (though I'm not sure how CVS
works on Win 2K - I assume you'd be using CVSNT?), but does need an SSH
server installed.

The clients need an SSH client that's compatible with the SSH server
(make sure you use ssh2 on both, or ssh1 on both).

They also need the environment variable CVS_RSH set to the ssh program,
or if you're using a CVS client such as WinCVS, the appropriate setting
in the client set to the ssh program.

You may need to set up ssh keys on the client and server, and
appropriate logins. I've also found with putty (on Windows clients), I
need to run pageant in the background.

After that, it should all 'just work'.
