I found the answer...

In /etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver (or whatever you've called the file) make sure
you have an entry for "only_from"...

service cvspserver
        only_from       =

This is just in case /etc/xinetd.conf sets the default to only allow
connections from localhost (which is what Gentoo does!).

Tony... can you update the example in
http://www.cvsnt.org/wiki/InstallationLinux? (section 1.4.1)
