Why? The fact that the server is running linux has nothing to do with the access
method. You have to check the server to see what method it supports (if you
haven't set it up yourself).

That said, you should probably try pserver next. If you want to know if the
server supports pserver, telnet to port 2401 and hit 'Enter'. If it gives you
'cvs [pserver aborted]: ...', it is supported.

'rhosts' means your're using rsh to connect to the repository. What happens when
you run a remote command on the server with 'rsh'? If you get 'connection
refused', it's likely that the server doesn't support it. Again, you probably
want pserver.
