“AuthorizationFailed” Error when accessing a Subversion Repository Remotely

From: Geoff Olding <goldsworth.systems_at_ntlworld.com>

I have set-up an installation of Subversion and TortoiseSVN on a server on a
client’s site.

I have created a repository on a shared folder on this server, and am running
the svnserve service, running on the local system account.

I have enabled anonymous access to the repository in svnserve.conf. I have
commented out all the lines in svnserve.conf except the following:

# anon-access = write
# auth-access = write

I have not altered the files authz or passwd (which I assumed are not used in
any case).

Using one of my client’s account (let’s call it Fred’s), on a workstation on
my client’s network, I can SVN Update and SVN Commit files with no problem
using TortoiseSVN, using the “svn://(Ip Address)/” syntax.

I am able to access my client’s server remotely over the internet via a VPN.
I have created a secure local account on my PC to do this (let’s call this
acocunt Jim). I log into my PC as Jim and connect to my client’s account
using Cisco VPN with the user name Jim. I can then remote desktop to my
client’s server using the Fred account. With this account I have full access
to the server, including the ability to control the svnserve service etc.

Whilst connected via the VPN, I can SVN Update files OK, however I cannot SVN
Commit. Whatever I try, I get the error “Authorization Failed”.

Any ideas?

Any help would be most appreciated.
