Re: Fixing "checkout -N"? (possible contracting gig)

I'm using http over a hardware vpn. I haven't tried other protocols since I
don't have either of the others set up. I assume that https could only make
things worse.

Pings are 30-60ms. I've got a 6Mbit/800Kbit DSL line (client) coming in to
a 1500Kbit/1500Kbit T1 (server). I'm running a Cygwin on Win XP client and
a Red Hat ES3 Server with a fairly up to date Apache and Svn mod. Both
boxes are plenty beefy for the task. I believe I've seen similar speed
issues on my Mac client as well.

I'm very proud of my network connection in general. I don't really have any
other network latency mysteries at the moment. I often use X11 over my
connection, and that works very well (a notorious bandwidth hog I

It sure would be nice to find out that I have something set up wrong and
could get better speed out of the system. Any ideas?
