I think our CVS is not set up correctly, but I am finding that doing cvs update foldername does not cause any of the files in it to be updated.

What is the proper way to do an update if update doesn't work?

CVS updates are supposed to be recursive. Why should I have to cd into the directory?

Try cvs -t update -d. If that doesn't work, post the output. –  David Schwartz Oct 28 '11 at 22:22
    
You should change into foldername and simply do cvs update there. –  ott-- Oct 29 '11 at 1:07
