I can't login to the CVS repositiery.
I am using cvs on a server.

I am trying to login :
cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/home/cvsroot login
but upon entering my password (12345)
I get the following message:
$ cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/home/cvsroot login
(Logging in to address@hidden)
CVS password:
cvs login: authorization failed: server rejected access to
/home/cvsroot/ for user robin

On the server, the repositery is in

The CVSROOT variable points at

The following are my configuration files:

In /etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver file I have:

# default: on
# description: The SPOP3 service allows remote users to access their mail \
#              using an POP3 client with SSL support such as Netscape \
#              Communicator or fetchmail.
service cvspserver
        socket_type             = stream
        protocol                = tcp
        wait                    = no
        user                    = root
        server                  =  /usr/bin/cvs
        server_args             =  --allow-root=/source pserver
        log_on_success          += USERID
        log_on_failure          += USERID
        disable                 =  no

the password is "12345"

When I have no /home/cvsroot/CVSROOT/passwd  file or i create this
file(paster the encryped passwd from /etc/shadow),the error message
are the same.

Any help is very much appreciated!!
