As previously pointed out CVSNT is different to CVS.  CVSNT runson Unix,
Linux, Windows etc etc and is GNU Open Source (free).  You can download
a linux RPM or the sources from here:

CVSNT 2.0.2 is quite old - so I suggest you update that client as well.

CVSNT server and client supports MergePoint, ACL's on branches, Unicode
files and many more features:

Subject: adding unicode files

I'm running cvs 2.0.2 (via WinCVS 1.3) on the client side, and the linux
server has version 1.11.5 running.  I'm trying to add a unicode file
using the -ku option, which my wincvs client seems to think is possible,
but I get the following error when I try to do so:

cvs server: invalid RCS keyword expansion mode
Valid expansion modes include:
   -kkv   Generate keywords using the default form.
   -kkvl  Like -kkv, except locker's name inserted.
   -kk    Generate only keyword names in keyword strings.
   -kv    Generate only keyword values in keyword strings.
   -ko    Generate the old keyword string (no changes from checked in
   -kb    Generate binary file unmodified (merges not allowed) (RCS
(Specify the --help global option for a list of other help options)

What version of cvs do I need to get running on the server in order for
it to deal properly with unicode files?  I know I can add them as
binaries, but that makes life difficult for merging and diffing.
