CVS pserver login problem

I hope this is the right place to send this. If not, please let me know 
where to send/post it. 

I've been trying to figure this out on my own for about a month, and just 
cant take it anymore. Hopefully one of you has seen this before and knows 
the answer.

I set up a pserver on a Red Hat 9 machine with CVS installed. From that 
machine, i have no problem using the pserver info to access the cvs server. 
But from a remote machine, I only get an "end of file" message if i try to 
log in. It happens whether password is correct or not. Any ideas what might 
be causing this?  


The following is info about related files and the error message, let me know 
if you need more (and please be as specific as possible, especially  with 
typical locations of files) :
