If you use the cvspserver descripted by /etc/xinet.d/cvspserver you can use
the tcpwrappers of xinetd (file /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny) :

in the file /etc/hosts.allow, add the line
cvs :  (here the ip adresses or subnet you want to

in the file /etc/hosts.deny

Access will be granted like this :
if entry found in hosts.allow -> access granted
else if entry found in hosts.deny -> acess refused
else access granted.

It's why the file hosts.deny must only contain ALL: ALL

If you use inetd, it's a different. Look for more information on

If you use another authentication server than pserver; I don't know .......
