I'm looking for a CVS client which works from the console. All windows clients that I've found are GUI's.

In Cygwin there is command line CVS available. It's pretty large package just for CVS client, but you'll get other useful things too, for example standard unix command line tools like sed, grep and so on (of course you don't have to use those ever).

You can also run Cygwin tools from normal Windows command prompt (CMD.EXE), if you add Cygwin binaries to your PATH variable (in Windows 7, Control Panel -> System -> Advanced System Settings -> Environment Variables -> search "Path" from "System variables" box and add ";C:\cygwin\bin;C:\cygwin\usr\bin").

+1 for Cygwin, though you can tune Cygwin setup.exe (somewhat) to limit all the extras of cygwin. – Rich Homolka Feb 22 '11 at 19:36
