Hi All,

I have configured CVSNT 2.0.58d on Linux (Fedora Core
release 2 , 2.6.5-1.358 kernel).
To enable security , I added -L option to
"server_args"  in xinetd configuration as mentioned in
the manual.
Here is my xinetd configuration.

  service cvspserver
                disable        = no
                socket_type    = stream
                wait           = no
                user           = cvsadmin
                group          = cvsadmin
                protocol       = tcp
                port           = 2401
                log_type       = FILE
                env            = 'HOME=/home/cvsadmin'
                server         = /usr/bin/cvs
                server_args    = -f -L
--allow-root=/usr/local/cvs pserver

Now I am getting the following error message whenever
I tried to login.( cvs login).
        cvs [login aborted]: bad auth protocol start:

Please let me know how to go about resolving this
