No, that would generate a different error.

The timeout error suggests that cvs-rep does not have the cvs server
running. Test it by opening a telnet session on port 2401. The telnet
program should connect immediately. Type a few random characters and press
'Enter' - you should see an error message "cvs [pserver aborted]: bad auth
protocol start: " followed by the characters you typed.

If telnet times out, or if you see a different message, then have a look at
the troubleshooting section of the manual:

particularly section F.2
