-bash-4.2$ cvs -z 9 -d :pserver:anoncvs at sourceware.org:/cvs/src login
Logging in to :pserver:anoncvs at sourceware.org:2401/cvs/src
pserver is port 2401 so you can use telnet to test the connection:
-bash-4.2$ telnet sourceware.org 2401
Connected to sourceware.org.
Escape character is '^]'.
cvs [pserver aborted]: bad auth protocol start:
Connection closed by foreign host.
