Have you read about the recommended protocols (pserver is NOT recommended), scroll to the bottom of this page: http://www.march-hare.com/cvspro/security.htm For a RHEL server I suggest you use :ssh:/:ext: protocol which will not require further configuration. If you do really want to use :pserver then you must configure the server inetd or xinetd: http://www.cvsnt.org/wiki/InstallationLinux > > TIA for any insights you can offer. Regards, Arthur
