From the CVS GUI, I've checked out the APRT.  Here are the info.

Connection type: extssh
User: c62ip74
Host: boc01
Port: Default
Repository path: /opt/prodcvs
Module: eai/APRT
Tag: Head

How do I know the directory name that's mapped to on the server?
According to your advice, I need to be in the directory in order to run
the command below.  I've reran the command below again under

boc01% pwd
boc01% /usr/local/bin/cvs -d /opt/prodcvs update -j 1.2 -j 1.1
cvs update: cannot open CVS/Entries for reading: No such file or
cvs update: use `cvs add' to create an entry for EA_APRT_LOAD.esql,v
cvs [update aborted]: cannot open CVS/Root: No such file or directory

Yes, when you run the update in the empty directory, the file will
magically reappear.
