This smacks of a firewall - You'd need to open the svnserve port to
allow it. Windows firewall would block this by default for example.
Dan: I opened the port in Windows Firewall AND my router. Also, before the power out, it wasn't a problem. When the port isn't open on my router, the foreign computer gets an error stating that the host computer actively refused access. However, as it stands now (with the port forwarded) it simply times out.
The only other program I have that could block anything is AVG, and it does not have a firewall.
