    you can not change the cvs password from eclipse. as eclipse is just used to connect to cvs and do the operations like commit, update...etc

    if you want to change you need to login to cvs server and use command line cvs pass to change the password
    something like........
    $ cvs pass mycvsuser

    It depends on how you can change your password depending on how your CVS server is setup. If CVS is using local system accounts then you will have to log in to the server and execute passwd, if you have separate CVS users, then you will have to change entry from the CVSROOT/passwd file.
