The reason why I need it:
    We have a CVS server with fix IP. And users with various PC, notebooks 
where we can not (or must not) change system and network settings. As the 
CVS server has it's own domain name only in the copany office private 
network I can't access the CVS server from a Windows notebook(can not 
resolve the name)

We connect with pserver:

The error message:
cvs commit: failed to create lock directory for xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 
Permission denied
