That means that either your specified root (/usr/local/cvsrepos) doesn't
exactly match one of the --allow-root= options on the server, the
specified username (zaren) doesn't exist, or the password is wrong. 
Check the server's syslog for messages from CVS (it logs them with the
facility LOG_DAEMON and priority LOG_NOTICE; if your syslog supports the
LOG_AUTHPRIV facility, it also logs there with additional information). 
If you're using the CVSROOT/passwd file, make sure the actual file
contains what you think it does.
