You try to init a remote repository.
This is not supported by default.
It would be mutch better to do the init on the machine where your
reporsitory is hosted.

 cvsadmin at hostlinux> cvs init <real_path_to_repository>

it is important not to use the alias-name for your repository but the
real path to your repository.

If you do the init as root, the repository whill be added to
/etc/cvsnt/Pserver.conf automaticaly, but the new created repository
will have permissions only for root. So you may want to change this

If you do the cvs init as a regular cvs user, the Pserver.conf will
not be modified (no permissions) but your repository will have
suitable permissions...

Best regards,
 Richard                            mailto:richard at wirthware.de
