I did a check on env, and mine requires -i , so I executed this:

solatis2 root # env -i PATH="$PATH" /usr/bin/cvs -f
--allow-root=/var/lib/cvsroot pserver

Then I did an nmap on localhost, and found out that port 2401 isn't
open. Is this supposed to happen with env?

Hehe, I always do the telnet test, don't worry... this time Connection
refused again, which is expected when the port isn't open :)

Thanks in advance for your help!
