svnserve setup not working

I'm well into the process of implementing SVN for our
in-house home-grown ERP, and it's working very well on a
single system (our development box).
I cannot get a second box to do a checkout from the
repository via svnserve.

Dev box (IBM AIX 5.3 using the SVN version 1.4.6 (r28521)
binaries from http://svnbinaries.open.collab.net) holds
the repository at /svn/cw3.
(Other repositories are planned for /svn/other.)
Development level code (our trunk) is at /svn/cw3/dvlp
Production level code is at /svn/cw3/prod

/svn/cw3/conf/svnserve.conf contains:
anon-access = read
auth-access = write
password-db = passwd
authz-db = authz

/svn/cw3/conf/passwd contains:
plibrm = asdf

/svn/cw3/conf/authz contains:
IT = 10003801,10003890,10003874,10003837,10003910
plib = plibrm,plibkt,plibdh,plibnb,plibrb
IT = r
plib = rw
IT = rw
plib = r

I start svnserve on that box with root privileges with the command
> svnserve --root=/svn/cw3 --foreground -i
and the following displays on that terminal:
  ( success ( 1 2 ( ANONYMOUS ) ( edit-pipeline svndiff1 absent-entries
) ) )

On box 2 (identical system, same AIX 5.3 O/S, same SVN version 1.4.6
(r28521) binaries, I then issue the command
> /opt/subversion/bin/svn co --username plibrm --password asdf
svn://cw3d/cw3/prod .
and get a response
  svn: Can't connect to host 'cw3d': A remote host refused an attempted
connect operation.

No matter what svn command I issue to svn://cw3d/anything, I get the
same response.
There is no additional output on either the client requesting terminal
nor on the
server execution terminal.

If instead on box 1 I use the command
> svnserve --root=/svn/cw3 --foreground -X
and then on box 2 use the command
> /opt/subversion/bin/svn co --username plibrm --password asdf
svn://cw3d/cw3/prod .
Then once(!) I received back
  Authentication realm: <svn://cw3d:3690>
  Password for 'plibrm':
I entered asdf as the password and received
  svn: Authorization failed
On every attempt since that one, All I get is
  svn: Authorization failed
On each -X attempt, the svnserve process sits and waits for the
connection attempt, and exits when the client terminal displays the
Authorization failed message.
There is no additional display on the server terminal.

What am I doing wrong? What do I need to setup/configure so that
will run on the repository machine, and on the remote machine svn
with svn://cw3d/address will work?
