It probably needs a bunch of shared libraries that it doesn't find on
your machine:


$ ldd ./cvsnt

and see what's missing. Even if you install the missing libraries,
there's a good chance nothing will work as expected, since ABI
compatibility is probably not guaranteed.

I really, really recommend you try do do the conversion on the VM you
found. If it's using an IPv6 network address, well then, change the
address. It's not rocket science.
