problems with remote connection

Hello all,

I cannot checkout modules from a remote linux machine using the commandline
on a win2000 machine.  When I use WinCVS's gui app it works.  I have always
used the gui in the past but want to get into all the other options

I have used both the standard win2000 shell and cygwin to try to connect.
First I try:

$>cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/u/repos login

I can login successfully, next I try:

$>cvs checkout doc

It gives me an error saying I need to use the -d option or specify the
CVSROOT. So I specify the CVSROOT and try to checkout again. This time I get
an error saying:

> refused
cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above message if

I noticed that on windows you need to set the HOME variable and I tried that
too but no go.

Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?
