Change server_args to
server_args     = -f -C /etc/cvsnt pserver

Also, unless you want public access, add something like:
only_from  =

/etc/cvsnt should contain the configuration files which are normally put
there when you installed the software... ensure that you set up PServer
correctly to tell cvsnt where your repository roots will be. (cp
PServer.example PServer then edit as required.)

Its ok now... sometimes software will use very silly defaults.
