"Server command" setting in cvsroot setup, what does it do?

I'm trying to setup up a local cvsroot. The path is r:/cvs. Idea accepts this, but when you browse the repository, you don't see anything. I checkout out the project in a command line window, then tried using IDEA to add some new directories, and I get this error message from cvs that "server" is not a valid command.

I see in the cvsroot config dialog a field for "Server command" with a default value of "server". There is no help for this dialog. Anyone know what this does? And has anyone gotten a local repository to work reliably?

I've been getting the same "server invalid" result using the same setup as you have. Have you had any luck in solving this problem?

Thx, Don

I gave up on it. I've just been going to the command line.
