Just thought I'd let you know that the problem is fixed, and to thank you
all for your kind help.

I have hardly believe what the issue was! The problem was that there was
another machine of the same name on the network, not running CVS! So when I
CVSd to it, of course it refused...

I have been through the troubleshooter, but not found anything I haven't

When I try to connect to the server from a Windows machine using:

set cvsroot=:pserver:address@hidden:/cvs/repository
cvs login [USERNAME]

..I get the line:

"CVS password:"

...but when I enter a password I get:

"cvs [login aborted]: connect to [SERVERNAME]([SERVERNAME]):2401 failed: No
connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it."

I have checked that the cvspserver file is in /etc/xinetd.d and that there
is a LISTEN entry when doing a netstat.

I can however log in from the Linux box itself using:

export cvsroot=:pserver:address@hidden:/cvs/repository
cvs login [USERNAME]

..and check out code etc. I will look at the pserver -f bit though!

See the troubleshooting advice in the manual:


If that doesn't help, feel free to ask for help, but at least tell us
exactly what the problem is!

The -f belongs before pserver, not after.
