But his problem was this:

So the basic thing is connectivity. I already adviced him to check the
service state:
cvs server runs and uses port 2401
lockserver runs and uses port 2402

I also asked about the Windows Firewall and he said that he had opened
port 2401.

That's when I referred him here to widen the expertise....
