I think the thing you have done wrong is to not visit the latest of the
CVS Cederqvist manual. 

It shows that after the RedHat 7 distribution the control for cvspserver
had shifted to the xnetd services avialble as separate files under the
/etc/xinetd.d directory. Here you create a file named cvspserver and
feed in the following contents to it.

# default: on
# service cvspserver
service cvspserver
        disable = no
        id              = cvspserver
        env             = HOME=/home/cvs
        socket_type     = stream
        protocol        = tcp
        port            = 2401
        wait            = no
        user            = root
        passenv         = PATH 
        server          = /usr/bin/cvs
        server_args     = -f --allow-root=/cvs pserver

Where server_args is the place where you give the path to your

Hope this helps. For better understanding read the Cederqvist Manual on
CVS 1.11.5, this can be found on

|hello to all.. ... as of the moment i succesfully setup a 
|winNT CVS server and its not that hard at all. workstations 
|can login/logout checkin/checkout files
|but since we are switching all workstations to linux, i want 
|to try it in linux. im having hard time seting up a CVS SERVER 
|in a redhat9 environment. 
|im encountering this problem:
|'cvs [login aborted]: reading from server: Connection reset by peer'
|as i've read 
|4 it says that i am missing pserver in my 'inetd.conf' but i 
|have it right there this is my 'inetd.conf' file
|cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/bin/cvs cvs 
|--allow-root=/repo pserver
|that is in one line
|running 'nmap localhost' on the server i can see 
|'2401/tcp   open        cvspserver' in it.. 
|im wondering what else could be wrong....
