The cvs client IS also the server.

Classic case of RTFM.

However - RH uses 'xinetd' which takes somthing like the following:

*** make sure you use your own --allow-root specification***

# default: on
# description: The cvspserver provides support for cvs network connections \
#       unencrypted username/password pairs for authentication.
service cvspserver
      flags           = REUSE
socket_type = stream wait = no
      user            = root
      passenv         = PATH
      server          = /usr/bin/cvs
      server_args     = -f --allow-root=/cvssrc/main/cvsroot pserver
      log_on_failure  += USERID
----- snip ------

placed in


and then run

/etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd restart (or HUP it or somthing)

RH comes with everything to run a cvs shop oob.

I have the CVS 1.11.1p1 that comes with RH 7.2, but the cvspserver and
cvsup programmes are not there.  How does one get the server running so
that CVS can be reached from other machines?
