Did you create the password file /usr/local/cvsroot/CVSROOT/passwd and
allow access for 'jrancier'?
By the way, you don't have to go through all the trouble of setting up
pserver if you just want a local CVS repository. Just set $CVSROOT and
use normal cvs commands, and it will access the files locally. pserver
is fairly insecure and if you plan to access it remotely you should use
the "CVS_RSH=ssh" access method instead. About the only thing pserver
is useful for is if you want a publicly available anonymous read-only
repository. My apologies if you knew this already.
