Hello all,
I am having trouble with my cvs remote login. It appears that my pserver doesn't start running.

My OS is Redhat 9.0

It is running xinetd

My /etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver file looks like this

# default: off
# description: An internal xinetd service, listing active services.
service services
   disable    = no
   id        = cvspserver
   env        = HOME=/home/cvs
   port        = 2401
   socket_type    = stream
   protocol    = tcp
   wait        = no
   user        = root
   passenv        =
   server        = /usr/bin/cvs
   server-args    = --allow-root=/var/lib/cvsroot pserver

When I type:
telnet [host] 2401 from my windoze machine is says: "Connection to [host]...Could not open a connection to host on port 2401 : Connect failed. ([host] is either jake or

telnet [host] 2401 in linux
telnet connection to address: Connection refused ( if use jake for [host])

using these following calls from linux
export CVSROOT=:pserver:address@hidden:/var/lib/cvsroot
cvs login

I put in my password and get this error:
connect to [host]:2401 failed: Connection refused

Using wincvs:
connect to failed: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

Using netstat nothing resembling pserver or cvs is listed. No port 2401 is listed either.

Using chkconfig --list |grep pserver
lists: cvspserver: on

I don't know if this is important but telnet, ftp and samba are all functioning properly.

Thanks for any insight or ideas...just about anything =D
