Some firewalls are not WebDAV compatible and will post problems.
(see http://www.webdav.org/other/proxy.html)

Try using port 81 for your checkout:

$ svn co http://svn.collab.net:81/repos/svn/trunk -d svn

It could be that your firewall is doing app-level filtering on port 80 and
blocking the DAV methods, but it will allow anything through on other ports
(such as port 81). (of course, you firewall could simply be blocking it,
too... :-)

[ note that we run the SVN server on both ports, 80 and 81, specifically for
  people with some firewall problems... ]
