Permission denied on :ext: protocol

I am trying to get the :ext: protocol working with rsh with little 
success.  When I try and checkout, I get:

Permission denied.
cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above 
messages if any)

I can execute cvs remotely:

users/tgx 11 >rsh lima cvs
Usage: cvs [cvs-options] command [command-options-and-arguments]
  where cvs-options are -q, -n, etc.
    (specify --help-options for a list of options)
  where command is add, admin, etc.
    (specify --help-commands for a list of commands
     or --help-synonyms for a list of command synonyms)
  where command-options-and-arguments depend on the specific command
    (specify -H followed by a command name for command-specific help)
  Specify --help to receive this message

The Concurrent Versions System (CVS) is a tool for version control.

My CVSROOT is set to :ext:address@hidden:/space/cvsroot and tgx is the user 
on the client side as well.  I can access the repository and seem to 
have write permissions:

users/tgx 14 >rsh lima touch /space/cvsroot/comox/foo 
users/tgx 15 >rsh ls -l /space/cvsroot/comox/foo
ls: unknown host
users/tgx 16 >rsh lima !*
rsh lima ls -l /space/cvsroot/comox/foo
-rw-r--r--   1 tgx      pgmmrs         0 Apr 30 09:38 

Any ideas?
