./cado-nfs.py 90377629292003121684002147101760858109247336549001090677693 server.port=8001

And then if you want to take care of running the clients by yourself, run
the server with

./cado-nfs.py 90377629292003121684002147101760858109247336549001090677693 server.port=8001 --server

As per ./scripts/cadofactor/README.md , if you supply a parameter file,
there's no default behaviour that starts clients. E.g. this is equivalent
to the former:

./cado-nfs.py 90377629292003121684002147101760858109247336549001090677693 server.port=8001 ./parameters/factor/params.c60
