PServer authentication

Are there documents pertaining to using PServer authentication for
CVS?   I have not been able to get a single authentication remotely
using PServer on my OpenBSD 2.7 box.   

I have tried creating a $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/passwd with blank passwords
(e.g. user::access) and this resulted in the same problems I have had
since the beginning.  Which would be 'cvs [login aborted]: authorization
failed: server cvs rejected access', which from what I gathered from
documentation is simply a generic output message.

However, I would prefer authentication from the /etc/passwd or
/etc/master.passwd file (since this is OpenBSD).   Is this possible
without having to create a secondary $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/passwd file?  And
can this work over NIS? 

The version is 1.10.7 (Client/Server) and as stated, a more complete
document on how to diagnose PServer authentication or some good advice
would be appreciated.
