I am getting a connection time-out message when I try
to connect to CVS that I just installed on my linux
box. I have setup the xinetd service and pserver is
listening on the port. I have also updated the router
to allow port 2401. 

I logged in to the linux box that has CVS installed
and tried to locally connect using the pserver. I get
the following response.

address@hidden cvs-files]# cvs -d
:pserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/fakibo login
Logging in to
CVS password: 
cvs [login aborted]: connect to
xxx.xx.xx.xx(xxx.xx.xx.xx):2401 failed: Connection
timed out

address@hidden cvs-files]# netstat -nlp | grep 2401
tcp        0      0      *                   LISTEN      2515/xinetd

address@hidden cvs-files]# netstat -a | grep pserver
tcp        0      0 *:cvspserver                *:*   


I am trying to locally connect to CVS server so there
shouldn't be any firewall or ISP related issue
blocking access to port 2401. I have setup the CVS
server using the official instructions. 

Any idea what could be going wrong here. Thanks in
