Hey Guys,

I recently successfully got our Subversion updated to the latest version. Our repository is running and clients access it through HTTPS. The issue that I've come across is that our users are able to authenticate to the repository with their Windows Active Directory accounts perfectly when accessing the site directly through a browser, or through Tortoise SVN (Note, the recent release of tortoise enabled the NTLM authentication to work flawlessly).

However, when I attempt to run any command or access the repository using the Linux svn client it fails, with the following error:

svn: Server sent unexpected return value (401 Authorization Required) in response to OPTIONS request for 'https://host/repo/'

In the apache logs I see the following:

[Wed Aug 06 02:23:06 2008] [debug] mod_auth_ntlm_winbind.c(937): [client] authenticate local user raky: FAILED

If a client accesses the repository through tortoise however, they receive the following:

[Wed Aug 06 02:59:36 2008] [debug] mod_auth_ntlm_winbind.c(788): [client] authenticated grant

I believe that there might be a bug with the linux svn client that does not allow it to authenticate with the repository using NTLM.

I hope to hear from you soon, and thank you in advance.

Kind Regards,
