If you have been told to connect by pserver, do this:

  cvs -d :pserver:user@remote.machine:/cvs/directory login
  [enter pserver password when prompted]
  cvs -d :pserver:user@remote.machine:/cvs/directory other_cvs_command
  cvs -d :pserver:user@remote.machine:/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:user@remote.machine:/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.
