Need help connecting to cvs

Hello everyone,

I am running RH 7.1 and cvs 1.11-3 using the bash shell.  I installed
cvs when I installed my server.  I am now trying to connect to it but
can not.  I am typing the following command:

"cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/aldonrep login"

I then get the following error msg. after the password prompt:

"cvs [login aborted]:  connect to localhost:2401 failed:  Connection

Anyone have any ideas?

These are some of the steps I have taken:

1.  #  cvs -d /usr/local/aldonrep init
2.  #  pico /etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver  # and added the following:

#cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/bin/cvs cvs
--allow-root=/usr/local/aldonrep pserver
#cvs pserver configuration
service cvspserver
    socket_type = stream
    protocol = tcp
    wait = no
    user = root
#    server = /bin/echo
    server_args= --allow-root /usr/local/aldonrep pserver
#    server_args = hello

3.  I then added a "cvs" group to my server and added myself to that
4.  I then ran the following commands:
        [/usr/local/aldonrep] #  chgrp -R cvs .
        [/usr/local/aldonrep] #  chmod ug+rwx . CVSROOT

I then tried to connect with the following command:

"cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/aldonrep login"

That's when I got the error.

Thanks for any and all help!
