Thanks! I made it working by adding ``-T /tmp'' before ``pserver'' to the CVS command in [x]inetd.conf.

BTW, any way to reinitilize the changes made in inetd.conf without rebooting the machine?

Thanks for your reply Larry. You are correct about the problem. I found I can access the CVS repository locally(on the same server) OK. But run cvs command remotely still not working. I am not sure where the /tmp/root set set. It use to be just create the temp files on /tmp.

What has most likely happened is that someone has changed $TMPDIR for
root to be /tmp/root and that setting is getting inherited by everything
that root starts, including [x]inetd and then CVS.  Check your [x]inetd
config file against what's shown in the CVS manual:

If that doesn't help, add an explicit ``-T /tmp'' before ``pserver'' to
the CVS command in [x]inetd.conf.
