Problems running cvs pserver

Subject: Problems running cvs pserver

Here is the current status of my problem.

platform:      solaris 7
cvs version :  GNUcvs.1.10
          Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.10 `Halibut' (client/server)

Installed using package downloads from  Ibiblio UNC.

cvs is installed and will run correctly in local mode. However we need it
to run as a password authenticated server.

We put the following in inetd.conf

     cvspserver stream  tcp  nowait  root  /usr/local/bin/cvs cvs -f
--allow-root=/usr/local/cvsroot pserver

and added the appropriate entry in `/etc/services'

     cvspserver      2401/tc

We can telnet to the port and we can see that the cvs process is spawed

ps -ef | grep cvs
root 21066  1022  0 16:07:10 ?        0:00 cvs -f
--allow-root=/usr/local/cvsroot pserver

However when we send any characters they are read and then ignored. Using
truss we can see that the process is just reading the input characters and
then sleeping.

When we use a CVS client to connect it just hangs after sending the
Authentication strings.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
