Because you haven't defined the CVSROOT environment variable.

If its not defined, then you must prefix all commands with -d <repo>, where
repo is what you would normally specify in CVSROOT.

To create a repo, do (as root on the machine where cvsnt server is running)
something like:

 cvs -d /var/lib/cvsnt/bungle init -a bungle

Then to access it on the same machine, try

 cvs -d :local:/var/lib/cvsnt/bungle ls

>From a remote machine, it would be

 cvs -d :pserver:/bungle ls
