Try using the ipaddress rather than the hostname. As you are using
pserver did you configured cvspserver file under /etc/xinetd.d or
/etc/inetd.d depending upon which distribution you are using. It is
always good to mention what platform , what version of cvs you are

May this article helps you

If it is a linux box r iptables enabled or selinux is a problem.

It is a remote system to which you are connecting means it is your lan
