You may be seeing a diffferent problem - but the diagnostic procedure is the same regardless.

I do not get a valid reverse DNS result when trying a reverse DNS lookup on that IP either, though the above Verisign article clearly says it is valid.  You could try manually adding that address to your hosts file or DNS to see if it helps...  

If I try the reverse DNS using Verisigns DNS then it also does not work


But if you go to the site, it definitely looks to be the same as crl.verisign.com:

Exactly what CVSROOT - do you mean local and pserver or just one?

Have you enabled 'clients are allowed to trace server'?  Have you done a trace and found the point of delay?  (You may have sent this already and I've just forgotten...).  Have you checked cvslock deamon/service (and on windows cvsservice also) are running?  Have you tried stopping them and running them in test mode?

cvslock -test
cvsservice -test
