login does not take any parameters (it gets everything from CVSROOT).

This implies that nothing is listening at port 2401 on the server. 
Since you say it works on the server itself, I can only conclude that
you're not connecting to the machine you think you are.  Or you have an
unusual firewall of some sort that is preventing the connection (normal
firewalls either result in a timeout or a successful connection that is
immediately closed).
