RE: Error with subversion service and NAT

Hi Bert,
well, hmmmm, must have misunderstood something.
I wanted to report a bug and I red in the instructions to contact this address first.

I still think it's a bug, your advice to use the UNC with the --root option doesn't work ether.
Fact is: as long as I ommit -r or use the local drive it works

The drive mapping IS available afak for a Service, specially when the user (administrator) is logged on
and the service is started manually (which is here the case).

of course I'm talking about NAS! Sorry, mistranslated - misused - mistyped - mist!
