Not that I know of.

CVS is a client server versioning system.  Just like FTP is a client
server file transfer protocol.  Someone had to install FTP server on
that remote server - just ask them to install cvs server (or cvsnt
server for Linux/Windows/Unix) there as well.

Or use one of the many free or non-free cvs servers available on the net
(go check google).

That's your sandbox - not your repository.

Sounds like you are using windows - in which case you are probably using
CVSNT, the newsgroup for which is here:
