Hi, all
I set up the cvs with cygwin under windows2K OS. I want to try a pserver connection protocol for my cvs repo. And I have followed some steps as shown below:

1. install and setup inetd, i have configured it properly and it works.
2. I also got telnet working successfully.
3. I created file /CVSROOT/passwd, it contains:
4. I added "passwd" into the end of the file CVSROOT/checkoutlist
And It seems that I can login with either lufang or joy successfully, but, when I try any cvs command after I just login , it said that the authorization failed.

You can see this clearly here:

$ /usr/sbin/inetd start

address@hidden ~
$ telnet kaguya
Connected to kaguya.
Escape character is '^]'.

CYGWIN_NT-5.0 1.3.19(0.71/3/2) (kaguya) (tty0)
