Im trying to import a empty folder , but getting the error message

cvs import: No CVSROOT specified!  Please use the `-d' option
cvs [import aborted]: or set the CVSROOT environment variable.

Tried specifying -d option also

cvs -d :sspi:username at servername:/Repository import -m "importing
folder" New

Where New is the folder to import

Then got the error:

***** CVS exited normally with code 1 *****
