The CVS server operations run with the permissions of your user on the
server (or, by default, the network/ActiveDirectory, depending or your
settings regarding Default Domain/Realm); you're only able to login
with this setup because you certainly set up both users with the same

So, the obvious answer is, you must set up access on the repository to
your server/remote user.
