I am attempting to use pserver with cvs (have been using rsh), but am having
some problems. Any help is appreciated.

So far I have done the following -
1. added the following inet entries to the server machine

in /etc/inet/inetd.conf -
cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /opt/cvs/bin/cvs
cvs -f --allow-root=/home/fullcirc/ARMDSYB/lexiscvs/lexis pserver

in /etc/inet/services -
cvspserver  2401/tcp # for cvs passwd auth server

2. forced inetd to reread its config file, and have tested the connection -
listening on port 2401.

3. setup a cvs password file in $CVSROOT/CVSROOT with 1 user 'anonymous' and
no password required.

4. attempt to log into the repository from a client machine, issuing this

cvs -d

prompted for a password -

(Logging in to address@hidden)
CVS password:

which I then enter any password. The following error message is returned -

cvs [login aborted]: unrecognized auth response from loneqlexprodora1: cvs
pserver: No CVSROOT specified!  Please use the `-d' option

I'm not sure why this is so. I am specifying a CVSROOT via the -d option.
I've also tried setting $CVSROOT, with no success. As I mentioned, I have
been using this remote repository via rsh for a while, so I know the
repository is ok.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions,
