Error in logging into pserver

I installed cvs on Solaris 8 from sources(cvs-1.11.1p1).
In order to start the cvspserver automatically, I added the following
line to /etc/ined.conf:

cvspserver      stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/local/bin/cvs     
--allow-root=/export/home/cvs -f pserver

And following line to /etc/services:

cvspserver      2401/tcp                        # CVS client/server
cvspserver      2401/udp                        # CVS client/server

After I restarted inetd process, port 2401 is open.

But when I try to login from client machines I am getting the following

CVSROOT: :pserver:address@hidden:/cvs (password authentication)
TCL is available, shell is enabled : help (select and press enter)
cvs login 
(Logging in to address@hidden)
Server configuration missing --allow-root in inetd.conf
cvs login: authorization failed: server 192.168.xx.y rejected access

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

I have created passwd file also in CVSROOT. Basically as error says it
is not seeing the " --allow-root" specified in /etc/ined.conf. Can you
please give me some hints to overcome this problem?
