If you have been told to connect by pserver, do this:
cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvs/directory login
[enter pserver password when prompted]
cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs/directory other_cvs_command
cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvs/directory logout
or, if you have an ordinary login on the remote machine, I think you
can do something like this:
cvs -d :ext:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs/directory cvs_command
see the CVS info pages - look up `remote' in the index.

If you mean Debian v. Soalris, that should be OK. If the CVS version
numbers are different, I suppose it depends how far apart they are.
