CVS 'Test Connection' hangs

I just downloaded TeamCity 4.5 to try it out. I have it installed on windows xp. when I tried to add the VCS configuration and clicked 'Test Connection' the loading image just stays like that forever until I click 'Cancel'. When I click cancel I get a message saying that the responseXML is empty. I can use TortoiseCVS to checkout the module without any problems. Here are the settings that I am using -

Type of VCS: CVS
Module Name: ModuleDirectory/ModuleName
CVS Root: ext -
Path to external rsh: C:\Program Files\TortoiseCVS\TortoisePlink.exe (Tried with and without this information)
Path to private key: C:\Private Keys\cvsprivatekey.ppk (Tried with and without this information)
(The private key has a password associated but the key already added to pageant)

Can someone please help me figure out what I am doing wrong?

Have you tried to use ssh protocol instead of ext? How did you create your private key/public key?

When I try the ssh protocol I get 'Invalid passphrase (Details: A suitable key format could not be found!). (null)'
Either ext or ssh works fine through tortoisecvs.
The key file was created using putty key generator

After converting the key file to openssh format it works fine - (
Thanks for your help!
