Do you mean you can't start the server with a command like
"civserver -f <savegame>" at a DOS prompt? If you haven't tried that,
and only tried to give commands like "-f <savegame>" at the server
prompt, then that is the problem.

When you start the client you get a dialog where you can type in the
name of the server you want to connect to.
