RE: Svn fails authentication without asking for credentials

I'm afraid I found my answer. (Forgot to search the users list last
time...)

http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=users&msgId=274913

Looks like SSPI is not supported, and the details for setting up the
server that way have been removed from the TortoiseSVN installation help
file.

(Waaaah!)

I honestly have no idea what SSPI authentication is. Is it
fundamentally different than an HTTP Basic Auth challenge?

This might just be a limitation in neon, which is the HTTP client
library that the svn client uses. I know that neon understands Basic
Auth challenges, and can handle client/server certificate challenges,
but maybe not SSPI?

Someone correct me, please.
