CVS doesn't use UDP, so there's no need for the second line.

Does ``telnet sa001207 2401'' work the same as above?  If so, inetd and
CVS are both working fine but it would appear that something is wrong
with netstat.  If not, there must be another definition of the pserver
service that is taking priority over the one you show above -- perhaps
another entry in /etc/services or perhaps an entry in NIS (aka Yellow

This is more of a system administration question than a CVS question, so
