I believe you have a terminology problem. A repository is typically
specified as a (connection method, hostname, pathname) tuple to a
hierarchy of files stored in RCS ',v' format.

A CVS server is typically the ability to run one or more processes on
the hostname using the particular connection method which is used to
provide access to the repository pathname.

The most common method to do this is to use the SSHv2 protocol with the
:ext: or :extssh: connection method to connect to the CVS server hostname
and checkout the files from the repository to the client.

If you are not able to directly use an SSH client (GNU/Linux
distributions typically use OpenSSH to implement the 'ssh' client/server
protocol), then you may be able to use a proxy server

A lot of folks use ssh as a way to provide a secure connection between
sites without without VPNs running.
