I doubt it.  When reporting problems, it is very important to report the
*exact* text of any error message you get.

That implies that you're using the :pserver: access method and
/export/cvs/cvsroot does not match any of the --allow-root options
specified on the pserver command line in /etc/inetd.conf.  It would
probably be helpful if you listed the exact series of commands you're
executing so we can see what you're doing.  You'll also need to tell us
how you've set your $CVSROOT environment variable.

I'd also suggest reading the CVS manual at if you
haven't already -- it's much simpler to get CVS running with a local
repository first and then set up client/server if you need it rather
than trying to immediately set up client/server.
