I haven't looked at the source to know; but, I would assume that you need the
other services such as INETD or RPC. It should work fine on NT with cygwin.

If you have the INETD and RPC it shouldn't be a problem.

I don't know, the only thing I've seen in print is from the article that Chris
gave the address to last week. It stated something about the shared memory may
be a security risk.

The only problem I've had at all on NT is with broken snapshots.
BTW, the current version of CVS builds OOB with Cygwin.
