hi kent,

i'm a cvs newbie, but here are some ideas:

1. anytime you edit /etc/inetd.conf, you need to restart the inetd service
   by doing:

      /etc/init.d/inetd restart

   i thought redhat used xinetd, though (i'm exclusively debian).

2. try using tcpdump to make sure packets are being received:

   tcpdump -i eth0 tcp port 2401

3. don't forget your log files.  i'm not sure where your syslogd will
   put the logs on redhat, so you can just grep for them:

   # cd /var/log
   # grep cvs * | less

   there *should* be something in there.

4. look in /etc/hosts.deny and /etc/hosts.allow.  many people put
   "ALL: ALL" in /etc/hosts.deny and only "allow" services on a host by
   host (or network by network) basis.  this is the most secure way to
   firewall: shut everything off and then turn stuff on little by
   little, rather than allowing everything and walling things off
   service by service.
