Re: Can I authenticate against a Windows domain controller using the svn: protocol?

I too would like to know how (if it's possible) to configure svnserve running
on Windows to authenticate against Active Directory. The documentation you
referenced is simply not enough for anyone who is not a Kerberos guru.

If anyone has an example of svn and SASL config files that do AD
authentication it would be very helpful.
