Thanks for your response.
The server version is
  "Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.2 (client/server)"
I'm inquiring as to what the server platform is (it's in another

I should add that when I do a CVS update on my dev machine
(as opposed to the test server), a WinXP box,
using Cygwin command-line cvs client or TortoiseCVS,
it works fine. It's only when I run it on the test server (using
command-line cvs client) that it fails to update existing files.

My dev machine's Cygwin cvs client is version 1.11.5.
My dev machine's TortoiseCVS version is 1.4.5, and its About box
  says CVS version: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.0.4 (client/server)
