  That's because you aren't running a server.

  And right now, you probably shouldn't be, because you don't *need* a
server to access a local repository.  The client can just get right in there
and access the files directly.

  Have you got CVS_RSH set in your environment?  Unset it.

  When you're ready and want to make the repository available to the other
developers, _then_ you will have to set up a server.  You will need to run
an inetd, and you will need to look at the documentation for the
"--allow-root" option.  See also the manual/info page section "Setting up
the server for password authentication".

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
