CVS: checkout and module name

I am a newbie about CVS.
I successfully logged (SSH tunnel) on a remote server.
I am in my home dir on that server.

I need to have a local copy of a project in my home, so I need to do checkout (first I set the CVSROOT variable and did cvs init). Then I want to do checkout, but they didn't give me the name of the project but checkout requires it.

cvs checkout NAME

Does exist a way to know all the project names or I have to ask them the exact name of the project ?

I do not see a command that explicitly lists projects.
Maybe you can use the log option:
