Remote login demands password when none defined - dont want it to anyway

  When I login to a new cvs installation (on a redhat 6.2 linux box)
  It demands a password but I dont want it to -
  and I dont know what it is either (anyway).

  I have played with CVS for about 12 hours
  and believe I have read (and re-read) the relevant doc's.

  I accept pserver may not be the best method. But I would
  like to get it working nevertheless for now.

  the relevant line in /etc/inetd.conf is;-

     cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/bin/cvs cvs -b /usr/bin 
--allow-root=/user/local/repository pserver

  cvspserver is defined ok in /etc/services as;-

     cvspserver  2401/tcp
     cvspserver  2401/udp

  I have edited /user/local/repository/CVSROOT/config
  so that password authentication is off! ie;-

  I have typed;-
     export CVSROOT=:pserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/repository


     cvs login

  initially file /usr/local/repository/CVSROOT/passwd did not exist
  and the login failed with the message;-

  cvs [login aborted]: recv() from server EOF

  when I create a passwd file containing the line
  ..and other lines.

  login also fails with the message

    cvs [login aborted]: authorization failed. Server rejected 

? Can anyone tell me how to modify this configuration to
  work with or without passwords? Security at this stage is NOT an issue!

  (Note I can checkout and commit files locally ok by just specifying
  a path for $CVSROOT. )
