>Then how did you initialize the repository? :-)
cvs -d /cvsroot init

I suspect my main problem is with the $CVSROOT.  Does the user in
:pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot need to be each username that will access the

My /etc/services:
cvspserver 2401/tcp

My inetd.conf reads this:
cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/bin/cvs
cvs -f -allow-root=/cvsroot pserver

Like I said, I suspect that I need to set up the $CVSROOT correctly.

Any more help is appreciated :)!!!  Thanks!

That's not correct if you want to use pserver.  You should set it to
something like:

Then how did you initialize the repository? :-)

I suggest getting pserver access working *on the server system* before
trying to get it working remotely; it makes debugging much easier.  For
troubleshooting advice, see the manual:

If you need more help, show us the exact error message and relavent
line(s) from your inetd or xinetd configuration.
