Everything is cool - that command is supposed to do "nothing". All it does is log in to the server in preparation for the second command on that page (the "co" command). Type in (copy/paste) the second command and you should see something more exciting.

The commands worked fine on my end. Here's exactly what I did (and saw):
Code:
[me@home]$ cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/xrdp login
Logging in to :pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:2401/cvsroot/xrdp
CVS password: <Just press enter here; no password>
[me@home]$ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/xrdp co -P xrdp
cvs checkout: Updating xrdp
U xrdp/COPYING
U xrdp/Makefile
U xrdp/design.txt
U xrdp/prog_std.txt
U xrdp/readme.txt
...
U xrdp/xrdp/xrdp_tcp.c
U xrdp/xrdp/xrdp_types.h
U xrdp/xrdp/xrdp_wm.c
[me@home]$ ls -l
total 4
drwxr-xr-x  8 me    me    4096 Jun 27 00:22 xrdp

Did you press 'enter' at the password prompt? I hate to beat a dead horse, but you didn't explicitly say you did or didn't.

If you did, what kind of internet connection do you have? high speed or modem? If modem, it may take a little while; don't know.

I've got high-speed, and it only took ~1 second from pressing enter at the password prompt to getting a local shell prompt again.

There may be some congestion or just an unreliable route between you and the CVS server. It may clear up after a while. If not, maybe there's some problem with a proxy or firewall you could be using. I don't know the specifics of how the CVS login/transfer protocol works, but checking your settings couldn't hurt.

yea, i did press enter, i'm on a high speed 1.5 mbit connection. but i am behind a pretty restrictive firewall/proxy that might be causing it

A firewall is a very likely problem if you're not getting a connection (sorry, I misunderstood your first post). cvs generally uses port 2401 if you have the ability to alter the firewall.
