Note carefully that the directory in the error message ends with a "/".

Note carefully that the directory in the --allow-root= option does *not*
end with a "/".  Like I said before, the directory in your $CVSROOT must
*EXACTLY* match the --allow-root= option on the server.  Get rid of the
trailing "/" in your $CVSROOT and it should work (unless there's another
problem, too).

Also, please do not edit commands to replace actual names with things
like "<server>".  Had you not left the trailing "CVS" in the directory
name, there's a good chance you would have edited away the trailing
slash and made it impossible to diagnose the problem.
