Don't do that -- it's not necessary.

CVS doesn't use UDP, so you don't need the second entry.

What release of CVS do you have?  The first entry (which is commented
out above) should be correct for any reasonably recent release.  The
current version is 1.11.1p1, which you can get from

"Connection refused" indicates that inetd isn't listening for connection
on the cvspserver port.  Check your syslog for error messages from
inetd.  Check that you're actually using /etc/services -- many Sun
systems use NIS instead.  See the troubleshooting section of the manual:
