On Windows Server 2012/SharePoint Server 2013 I activated CMIS like this, but when trying to connect to CMIS at http://myserver/cmis/rest/ I get a 404 error:

Is it a sign that my SharePoint is not ready to be used as a CMIS server?
It is a collaboration site. I just have a test file uploaded to it. Do I need to create workspaces or anything for CMIS to start working?
I am running CMIS Workbench directly on the server, so I guess it is not a network problem.

Via CMIS Workbench I get:

I was using the wrong URL, it seems.

It works with http://myserver/_vti_bin/cmis/rest?getRepositories

Or for a particular site site1: http://myserver/site1/_vti_bin/cmis/rest?getRepositories
