Help: Linux CVS Server Access Problem

I am setting up a CVS repository on a Redhat 9 Linux server in a directory
"/cvs/repository", but am having some problems.

I have set up the repository, and on the box itself can do a:

bash# export CVSROOT=:pserver:address@hidden:/cvs/repository
bash# cvs login

And I can authenticate, and then check out code in the repository fine. The
problem is when I try to connect to the server remotely and do the same

I have:

* disabled the firewall using "redhat-config-securitylevel"

* Added the file; /etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver with the contents:

service cvspserver
        socket_type         = stream
        protocol            = tcp
        wait                = no
        user                = root
        passenv             =
        server              = /usr/bin/cvs
        server_args         = --allow-root=/cvs/repository pserver -f

(and restarted xinet.d)

* checked via a netstat that there is a LISTEN for cvspserver.

The server is using DHCP to obtain an IP.

Anything else I can try?
