You've told us everything except the single most important piece of
information: what is the exact command that fails and what is the error
message you get?

CVS doesn't use UDP, so feel free to remove that entry if you like.

What version of CVS do you have?  Empty passwords are a reasonably
recent addition that isn't supported by older versions.
