Usually that indicates that inetd is unable to start CVS, typically
because the path in /etc/inetd.conf is not correct.  In this case,
however, I see lots of other potential problems as well:  The command in
inetd.conf is missing the required -f and --allow-root options but has
the obsolete -b option; unless you're running an ancient version of CVS,
that's not going to work.  If you are running an ancient version of CVS,
you should definitely upgrade to the current release (1.11.1p1), which
you can get from  Also, the repository you've specified
in the -d option to your login command looks suspiciously like the path
to a particular module rather than the path to the repository as a

I don't understand your problem.  If you can do other commands, you must
be using some connection method other than :pserver:, in which case you
don't need to login.  If you are using :pserver:, then other commands
can't possibly work without logging in.
