Hy again,

actuall the entry in my inetd.conf is:

cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd
/usr/bin/cvs -f --allow-root=/usr/cvs pserver

I try to login like follow:

C:\Programme\cvs>cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/usr/cvs login
Logging in to :pserver:address@hidden:2401/usr/cvs
CVS password:
cvs [login aborted]: connect to failed:
Connection refused

i have tryed it with and without "passwd", the same result.
The user "fredy" does exists as a user in the system !

have anybody another idea ;-)

No.  /usr/cvs is your repository, CVSROOT is a top-level directory in
the repository.  What comes after --allow-root= is just the repository
name and must match *exactly* what you use in your $CVSROOT
specification.  So, you want --allow-root=/usr/cvs (with no trailing
slash, please); and your $CVSROOT should be something like:


(again, with no trailing slash, please).
