Setting up a CVS server


Hello,

I have been trying to setup a CVS server (using pserver, I know its insecure but its internal so it doesn't matter ^^) howeverm after following about 3 guides (all pretty much saying the same thing), I get the same error and now I'm fed up. I'm trying to get it to work on a Fedora Core 3 machine using xinetd. When I try to connect on another machine, I get the error...

Quote:
cvs [login aborted]: connect to host.name(xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx):2401 failed: No route to host
Anyone have any ideas why this might not be working? One of the tutorials gave me a line to place at the bottom of my IPTables file and I did that, still no work =/

Thanks so much!

I am not sure but
- did you check /etc/hosts.allow or hosts.deny?
- can u ping the machine?
- if there is a firewall, do you allow incoming connections on port 2401?
- is you ISP not blocking CVS port ?

Hey,

The .allow and .deny files are empty
Pinging works, yes
I don't believe there is a firewall, I added a line to iptables to allow incoming connections on 2401
The ISP shouldn't be blocking it seeing how its a University Network.


The line I added to iptables looks like this
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -s ip.of.cvs.host -p tcp --dport 2401 -j ACCEPT

Thanks!

i was once a sysadmin at a university and non standard ports like CVS, SSH were blocked. I though it was a misconfiguration but it was all about the university network policy.

Well i got the problem solved,

but SSH and CVS are allowed on the campus network here, the only computers allowed to have them though are the ones that are on the grad/reasearch environment (so wireless laptops and students working in the undergrad environment can not)
