I installed the cvsnt.but i confuse the setup of client and server(control panel).

Could you please , give the sample..

The CVSNT control panel is a server configuration utility.  It has nothing to do with the client side.
Basically you've to preform following steps:
1. Create repository (at least one)
Go to the Repository Configuration tab in the CVSNT control panel and click Add. Then create a folder that will be a root of your repository and click Ok. The CVS will propose to initialize the  new repository - accept it.

2. Configure server settings
Go to the Server Configuration tab in the CVSNT control panel and set appropriate values for  Run as user, Default domain and Temporary directory fields
All other setting you may leave at the default. Just make sure that the CVS server port (2401) is open in the firewall

3. Restart the CVSNT service.
Go to the About  tab in the CVSNT control panel and click Stop and then Start.
On the client side you have the default cvs.exe command line utility. If you are interested in a GUI client you may take a look at the http://wincvs.org/   or at the http://www.tortoisecvs.org/

Please keep in mind that there is a huge number of the possible CVS configurations  and  my answers in no way can replace the reading of the CVS manual.
I'll do my best  to answer on any particular question.
