Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Thanks for the reply. echo $CVSROOT on cvs server is /home/cvsroot.
on server the checkout etc is working.
from remote if I connect using ext: instead od pserver it works.
It is only when using pserver that I am having problem.
using cvs login command on remote I get /home/cvsroot no such repository
on the cvs server in /var/log/messages I get Sep 10 15:08:51 kslserver cvs: login refused for /home/cvsroot
This is why I was suspecting the PAM module which is probably not letting me login using pserver.
content of my /etc/pam.d/cvs is
auth sufficient pam_permit.so
account sufficient pam_permit.so
the content of /etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver is
# default: off
# description: The CVS service can record the history of your source \
# files. CVS stores all the versions of a file in a single \
# file in a clever way that only stores the differences \
# between versions.
disable = no
port = 2401
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = cvs
server = /usr/bin/cvs
env = CVSROOT=/home/cvsroot
server_args = -f --allow-root=/var/cvs pserver
bind = 192.168.2.3
According to the above line in your xinetd configuration your CVSROOT is /var/cvs. What is the correct dir anyway, it's /home/cvsroot or /var/cvs?
Make the correct changes, restart xinetd and see what happens.
