In the first place, WinCVS is a CVS client; you aren't going to have Eclipse
use it. You want Eclipse to use CVS.

CVS (which is a plug-in to the Eclipse). As i am not using client-

You're using the :local: protocol.

My Understanding:

1. Host : Local system name
2. repository Path: Locatin of CVSRoot

For These fields i am not sure:

3. User:
4. Password

Neither of these are needed for a local repository.

5. Connection Type

local (known as ":local:" in CVS terms).

For connection type, it gives following options: pserver, ssh, ext
etc. As these clients [sic] are not running, and my repository is local,
can't i access teh location without these clients running.

Yes, and they aren't "clients", they're "protocols".

Please suggest me for this issue. Also correct me if my understanding
is wrong.

Trying hard to.

Have you considered reading the CVS documentation?
