Is the CVS Server Service running?  Do you have a firewall installed?  If
the port is blocked, you can't connect.  I believe XPHome tries to install a
firewall by default.  Try "telnet {yourhost} 2401".  If it connects, press
ENTER and you should get this:

cvs [server aborted]: bad auth protocol start:

Connection to host lost.

If not, then you aren't talking to CVS.
