Connection refused to CVS


Hi there,

I'm trying to set up a CVS server on a Redhat 7.2 machine and connect to it from my windows box.

I have set up a cvs user and group and I ran

cvs -d /usr/local/cvs init

to initialise the CVS directory and gave the cvs user and group ownership of this directory. Then I put the following line in /etc/inetd.conf

cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/bin/cvs cvs --allow-root=/cvs pserver

and made sure that cvspserver 2401/tcp was in /etc/services.

Then I restarted and tried to test it with

cvs -d :pserver:cvs@localhost.localdomain:2401:/usr/local/cvs login

It asks for the password then gives a cvs [login aborted]: connect to ... failed: Connection refused. I tried connecting through wincvs and the same thing happens.

So I did a search on these forums and found http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ht=cvs+pserver . I tried setting it up this way with the same results.

I don't really know the difference between inetd and xinetd. I'm just a bit lost really so does anyone have any idea what the problem could be?

Thanks.

Thanks for that.

My question was old but the next time I need to do this I'll take a look.

There are two possibilities to the problem.
1. CVS server is not running
2. Firewall is blocking the access to CVS server

try them and inform me
