CVS Password

Hi All, 

I have created a CVS repository on one of my server
machines and I am trying to connect to this server
repository from another CVS machine using the command

cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:<repository path>

When I am using this command it is asking me for the
password, I am using the password of the user with
which I am connecting, for example if the "username"
is "cvstest" and the password is also "cvstest" then I
am logging in as follows:

cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:<repository path>
CVS password:cvstest
Unknown host <hostname>

The above is a description of the command I am using
and it gives me the above message of "unknown host"

Can anyone tell me why is this happening is it b'cos I
am specifying the wrong password, or is there anything
else wrong in the above command.

Now there is another catch, when I am trying to
connect to the postgreSQL repository with the command:

cvs -d

It asks for the password and logs into CVS.

Can anyone please tell me what is the reason of me
getting connected to the postgreSQL remote repository
and not getting connected to another remote repository
that has been created on my server machine.

Please revert back if any other information is

Thanks in advance.
