Hi Hamid,


Good catch. I verified that this string must be checked case insensitive
(RFC2617) and then applied a patch in r35981.

Subject: svn + isa (firewall) + https


Dear dev!


Svn clients (1.5.5) on linux can not connect to svn server behind Microsoft
ISA firewall publishing the svn server using https web listener.

This is due to the fact that ISA server publishes the attribute names using
capital letter, in this case "Realm". However svn server publish them as
all lower case "realm". Subversion/libsvn_ra_serf/auth.c compares the
attributes using "strcmp" which is a case sensitive comparison .



By replacing the "strcmp" with "strcasecmp" (case insensitive compare),
problem goes away!
