cvs (pserver) problem
Posted on 2002-06-27
I'm facing a problem with the cvs pserver. after renaming the pc, I'm unable to connect to my cvs server:
>cvs -d :pserver:abc@servername:/data/CVS/bla login
(Logging in to abc@servername )
cvs [login aborted]: connect to servername:2401 failed: Connection refused
testing the connection to pserver with "telnet servername 2401" gives:
unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
the /etc/services file has the correct entries:
cvspserver 2401/tcp cvspserver
cvspserver 2401/udp cvspserver
now I read, that the next (test-)step is to check whether inetd is working correct, with the enty:
2401 stream tcp nowait root /bin/echo echo hello
in inetd.conf ...
UNFORTUNATELY my mandrake distribution does not has a inetd.conf
I only have a xinet.d/cvs which looks like:
disable = no
sockettype = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/cvspserver
do I have to modify the xinet.d/cvs to force the echo test?
how to modify the xinet.d/cvs ?
are there other ways to test the pserver?
