many cvs pserver implementations start cvs via inetd or xinetd (by adding a line
in /etc/inetd.conf on the server). in this arrangement cvs pserver is not
running continuously as a daemon, it only exists when a connection is initiated
on port 2401.

if this is the case with your setup, you can verify the pserver operation by
running something like:

        telnet myserver 2401
        cvs -t myserver login

where the -t gives you some extra trace/debug output.
