We're CVS experts, not tdpd experts.  Nonetheless, I don't think that's
correct.  As I understand tcpd, that says that anyone is allowed to use
the http-rman server, whatever that is.  I believe you want:

        cvs: ALL

But that prompts the question, why bother running CVS under tcpd if
you're not going to restrict access to it?
