BTW it sounds like your problem is a configuration problem, not a Bug in CVS,
so if the following info does not solve your problem, please re-ask in the CVS
users list, thanks.
currently (Fri Oct 12 12:34:22 UTC 2007) ximbiot is not responding well, so
I will be making references against a local copy of the manual from
ftp.gnu.org, which was untared in /tmp/.
From the list of error messages there is something in the way pserver was
configured which makes it not like they way you are connecting.
Assuming you setup the pserver server correctly according to the manual,
the problem is in the way you are having the client make the connection.
Your client connection information above indicates that you may not have
logged in and that the server is not a public-access repository, so according
to the manual you will need to do a cvs pserver login.
Other possible sources for this error:
A) you have not configured [x]inetd for pserver.
B) you have not done a cvs init of the /home/cvs directory structure while
logged in on 192.168.0.160.
C) you have made the mistake of trying to login through pserver as root, to
allow this IIRC you have to recompile cvs with a special option to break
security even further than pserver already does. Common practice is to have
the repository owned by some one other than root, and usually use real system
user names and system groups to control access to the cvs directories.
D) you have not restarted [x]inetd after configuring for pserver.
You can debug these following the manual's connection troubleshooting guide.
