This is extremely complex to set up - your local repository needs to be
a write through cache.

I'm not sure how you'd do this with CVS, but these posts explain how to
do it with CVSNT:

Repository replication is almost never needed - CVS is designed to work
without it even over very slow networks or while a developer is offline
for long periods of time.

You need to send the newsgroup the actual commands you are using and the
actual (compelte) error message including the 'connection string' (also
called the CVSROOT) that looks like:
 * :pserver:address@hidden:/repo
 * :local:host:/var/opt/blah
 * etc
