Unable to run cvs server

Good morning.

I have a problem setting  a CVS server on Windows XP. I have downloaded 
the latest stable cvs.exe version (cvs-1-11-21) and the matching 
documentation cederqvist-1.11.21.pdf on http://cvs.nongnu.org

Reading the documentation, I have found that, in the Chapter Appendix B: 
Quick Reference to CVS Commands, the following server commands are 
- kserver
- pserver
- server

On the other hand, my cvs.exe does not recognize these options so that I 
cannot run my server. In the institution I am working in, it is forbidden 
to install any software so I cannot install CVSNT nor TortoiseCVS etc ... 
the helper of CVS sendsn me the following message:

Unknown command: `server'

CVS commands are:
        add          Add a new file/directory to the repository
        admin        Administration front end for rcs
        annotate     Show last revision where each line was modified
        checkout     Checkout sources for editing

        export       Export sources from CVS, similar to checkout
        history      Show repository access history
        import       Import sources into CVS, using vendor branches
        init         Create a CVS repository if it doesn't exist
        log          Print out history information for files
        login        Prompt for password for authenticating server
        logout       Removes entry in .cvspass for remote repository

Could you please help me to set my CVS server ?
