RE: SVN Protocol

Hi Max,
Thanks for rectifying me.

The below are the sequence of requests and responses that I send and
Proxy: ( success ( 1 2 ( ANONYMOUS ) ( edit-pipeline ) ) )
Yes you were right I sending some junk at the end of the first request (
that I picked from a Turkish and japanese sites..
) now it is truncated

Client: ( 2 ( edit-pipeline ) 28:svn:///d:/svnrep/SVNProtocol )

Now for the authentication I send this request I know that I need to
send a realm string but do not know what I should send.
auth-request: ( ( mech:word ... ) realm:string )

Proxy: ( ( ANONYMOUS ) ? )

That's the reason now the client is not sending back a response.

As I already responded to your duplicate email on users@, you do not
to be following the protocol properly.

I reproduce my previous mail here:

What is this?? I do not see this in either the protocol document or in
captured traces of network traffic.

Again, what is this?? I do not see this in either the protocol document
in captured traces of network traffic.

I suspect the client is giving up faced with the weird responses you are
giving it, and re-trying.
