connecting WinCVS client

I'm having trouble connecting a winCVS client (under NT) to cvs server on
HPUX.  Was wondering if any anyone could help.

Steps so far:
1) installed cvs on server  (cvs-1.11.1p1-HP[1])
2) modified /etc/services to add entry for cvspserver 2401
3) modified /etc/inetd.conf  to put in 
       cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/bin/cvs
--allow-root=/opt/CVS_AREA/testrepos pserver

4) re-started inetd

as well mucked around adding .rhosts file so can map from PC login to unix

Anyway, when attempting a logon from the winCVS gui (with my CVSROOT as
address@hidden:/opt/CVS_AREA/testrepos)   I get,

CVSROOT: address@hidden:/opt/CVS_AREA/testrepos (password authentication)
TCL is *not* available, shell is disabled
cvs login 
(Logging in to address@hidden)
cvs [login aborted]: recv() from server test: EOF

*****CVS exited normally with code 1*****

Obviously I'm getting an EOF response for some reason.  Any idea why?  Is
not having tcl a worry at all?   My server name is test (I added it to my NT
hosts file) and my unix login is paul.

Thanks for any help.
