CVS server + WinCVS client + GSSAPI (gserver)

Hello all,

I'm new to CVS and I would like to make a CVS server (with cvs-1.11.15) on a
Redhat 7.3 station and access this server with a WinCVS 1.3.13 client on a
WinXP station. I am using the gserver access method.

On the server, I configured the server as it is described in
cderqvist-1.11.15.pdf :

-configure cvs with --with-gssapi and --enable-encrypt
options --prefix=/usr/local/cvs
-make install
-entered CVSROOT variable as /usr/local/cvs/cvsroot
-cvs init

-create the pserver :
        service cvspserver
        socket_type = stream
        server = /usr/local/cvs/bin/cvs
        server_args = -f --allow-root=/usr/local/cvs/cvsroot pserver

-restart xinetd
-verifying that xinetd is listening on port 2401
-create an empty 'passwd' file
-set SystemAuth=no in the 'config' file using CVS.

On the client, I configured WinCVS like this :

Admin -> Preferences ->     Authentication :     gserver
                                            host adress:

                                            Encryption turned off

Remote -> Checkout module ->     module name and path: CVSROOT/config
                                                        local folder to
checkout to : C:\test\

On the WinCVS client, I receive the message :
cvs checkout -P CVSROOT/config (in directory C:\test)

cvs [checkout aborted]: the :gserver: access method is not installed on this

***** CVS exited normally with code 1 *****

Does anybody knows from where it comes from?

Thanks for any help.
