Setting up CVS

I’m having trouble setting up a CVS repository.

Using bash, I have followed the process outlined here

When I attempt to login using WinCVS, I get:
cvs [login aborted]: connect to failed: Connection refused

I’m assuming this is because the authentication type under preferences says: “passwd” file on the cvs server.

So I change the authentication type to SSH, which I think is right since DH doesn’t permit pserver. Using this authenication option, WinCVS says:
Set the password authentication first in the preferences !

I’m lost.

I basically want to setup a small CVS repository on DH and use the WinCVS client locally.
