|Subject:||Problem with remote imports|

I'm setting up a CVS repository on a machine (lovey) for the purpose of version-controlling system and application config files. I'm using the :ext: method over ssh for remote access to the repository (ssh logins work fine).
I have a full install of CVS on the repository machine, and the cvs executable on the client machines (not a full install, don't want one). First, is a full install of CVS required on each machine? If not, is the cvs-executable-only adequate for the client machines? If not, what's required for a client-only install on the non-repository machines? If what I've done so far is OK, let's move on the the problem description.
On each machine, I want to build a directory structure like this (we'll use machine glamrock as an example):
Subdir system will contain additional subdirs mirroring the actual locations of the version-controlled files with copies of the files in them: ~/etc/hosts, ~/etc/nsswitch.conf, ~/etc/resolv.conf, and so on. Subdir app will contain additional subdirs mirroring the actual locations of the version-controlled files in them: ~/opt/perf/newconfig/<filename> and so on. I then want to create the initial project from the remote machine (in this case, glamrock) with the command:
cvs -d :ext:address@hidden:/link/repository import -m "Glamrock repository creation" glamrock mlarsen start
where /link/repository is the location of the repository on lovey (is that how it works?). I have CVS_RSH set to ssh on all machines. What I get from the above command is:
ksh: cvs: cannot execute
cvs [import aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)
Executing cvs on each machine results in the usage dialog, so I can indeed execute the command. Permissions on the repository allow for write access by all members of the cvs group, of which I belong across the board.
I'm assuming I've missed the boat on remote command execution somewhere. Or is it not possible to create a project from a remote machine? Thanks in advance.
