  I take it you're connecting to a remote server?

  Are you using RSH as the transport? What is the value of CVS_RSH?

  Assuming you are: is rshd installed? (or is it rexecd, it's been so
  long since I installed those Sun RPC facilities) <rpm -q rsh>

  If installed, does the server have `rsh' chkconfig'd on? This is
  part of the xinetd configuration. <man chkconfig> <man xinetd>

  If installed and chkconfig'd on, does the server's
  /etc/hosts.{allow,deny} allow such a connection? <man hosts_access> 

  You can use SSH by setting CVS_RSH to 'ssh'. That's a safer way to
  do it anyway.

ABILITY, n.  The natural equipment to accomplish some small part of 
the meaner ambitions distinguishing able men from dead ones.  In the 
last analysis ability is commonly found to consist mainly in a high 
degree of solemnity.  Perhaps, however, this impressive quality is 
rightly appraised; it is no easy task to be solemn.
