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


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

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.
