Re: Manual username/password (Error: Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to OPTIONS)

Let's not get offtopic on security.

It seems we don't need to request any server change, because command-
line svn just works fine again, even without providing a --username:

svn co https://repository/svnroot/project

prompts for a username/password, and it doesn't terminate with the
'server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to
OPTIONS.

Is this 'OPTIONS" request tortoise SVN specific? Perhaps the command-
line svn co command doesn't send such 'OPTIONS' request?
Thanks,
Erwin
