For a repository to work it must be registered and configured on the server. There is a limited ability for the admin to enable remote initialisation within a defined sandbox in later versions of cvsnt (yours is quite old and does not support remote init at all) but it's not widely used. There are security issues with enabling such an option, even with enforced sandboxing - the ability to create scripts that can be run as other users (in CVSROOT) is something that needs to be carefully monitored by the administrator.
