Well, the correct sequence of actions to be taken is,

1. Start the civserver in a terminal window
2. Start the civclient application
3. Connect to server
4. Switch back to civserver terminal window
5. Optionally enter game options
6. Enter "start"
7. Switch back to civclient window
8. Play

If this doesn't work for you, please tell us, what OS you use,
which Freeciv version, and where your grandma buys the milk ;)
