CVS Server problems

I hope this is the right mailing list, since this might be a somewhat
technical question.

I currently have a CVS pserver running. It is configured with xinetd
stating this:

address@hidden xinetd.d # cat ./cvspserver-tcp
service cvspserver
   port         = 2401
   socket_type  = stream
   protocol     = tcp
   wait         = no
   user         = root
   passenv      = PATH
   disable      = no
   server       = /usr/bin/cvs
   server_args  = --allow-root=/var/lib/cvsroot pserver
address@hidden xinetd.d #

I have inited cvs using the statement:

cvs -d /var/lib/cvsroot/ init

which resulted in a directory created called /var/lib/cvsroot/CVSROOT
with quite a few files in it...

Now, I checked if the server was actually online by using nmap... it
showed this:

2401/tcp   open        cvspserver

so I assume it is running... however, when I try to do a cvs login, it
gives me this:

address@hidden lmergen $ echo $CVSROOT
address@hidden lmergen $ cvs login
Logging in to :pserver:address@hidden:2401/var/lib/cvsroot
CVS password:
cvs [login aborted]: reading from server: Connection reset by peer
address@hidden lmergen $

and when I try to telnet to it at port 2401, PuTTY tells my that "the
software caused the connection to abort" .

Does anyone has any idea at all what is causing this?

Sorry if I have provided too much information, but I just want to make
sure that I provided enough :)

Thanks in advance for any help!
