Hi all ,

I am new to CVS configuration . I had installed CVS from its source on
Debian Linux System . I created a repository and imported all my projects
into it. I added the following line to inetd.conf file

"cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/bin/cvs
cvs -f --allow-root=/usr/local/cvsrepository pserver"..
This allows me to connect to the server from remote machine , right?
I followed all the necessary steps to configure the CVS server and I am sure
it is up and running.

Next I created a user (& group) called "cvsusergroup" and added myself
(already existing Unix user) . I also manually edited the passwd file of
$CVSROOT/CVSROOT directory and added my account.

Now the main problem I am facing is , when ever I try to connect using jCVS
, it says "I HATE YOU" . It is not authenticating any user .

I had given a try using the SSH client and also winCVS . I get the same
error , It says

"cvs [login aborted]: authorization failed: server <IP address> rejected
access to /usr/local/cvsrepository for user cvsusergroup".

I am tired of trying out in many ways . I gave full permissions to the
repository , defined user and owner of the repository as "cvsusergroup".

Can anyone suggest , where did I go wrong .. I appreciate your help.
