I am attempting to set up a CVS repository with anonymous pserver read-only access.

My server configuration is:
Red Hat Linux 7
cvs 1.11-1

My client configuration is:
WinCVS 1.2

To set up anonymous pserver access, I have the following settings in my repository:
/CVSROOT/readers contains "anonymous"
/CVSROOT/writers is blank
/CVSROOT/val-tags is world-writeable - "-rw-rw-rw-"
/CVSROOT/config has all settings commented out

My CVSROOT directory settings are "drwxrwxr-x
My module file level settings are "drwxrwxrwx"

With these settings, attempting to checkout my module returns the following error in WinCVS:
"cvs [server aborted]:  "checkout" requires write access to the repository"

Entering "anonymous" in my writers file corrects this error. However, this has the obvious undesired effect of giving commit/write access to anonymous logins.

Are there other settings that I need to modify to set up read-only anonymous access?
