Such utilities have been posted to the list before -- I suggest
searching the archives.  Also, to prevent this problem from reoccurring
in the future, you should set up a virtual host name for your CVS server
(something like "cvs") and make it an alias for the actual machine name.
If you have to move the repository again in the future, all you have to
do is change the definition of the alias to point to the new machine,
the users don't have to do anything at all.
