RE: SVN client 1.8.x: unable to checkout public repositories when behind a web proxy

We tested Subversion (and serf) with a number of different proxy servers and
that worked correctly. Without knowledge of how we can reproduce your
problem there is nothing we can do. And adding an issue to our issue tracker
without something we can do is a complete waste of your (and our) time.


So, perhaps it would help if you provide the errors you see and as much
information as possible to allow us to help you.

Subject: SVN client 1.8.x: unable to checkout public repositories when
behind a web proxy


Hello all,


I have come across the following situation:

- With SVN client 1.8.x (specifically Tortoise 1.8.4), I'm not able
to checkout public repositories when behind a (company) web proxy. You can
try as an example to checkout from

- It works fine with SVN client 1.7.14.

- If I try from home where I have direct access to Internet (i.e.
no proxy), it works fine both ways (i.e. with SVN client 1.7.14 and with SVN
client 1.8.4).

- I am aware of some regressions introduced in 1.8.x (specifically
in 1.8.0 and supposed to be fixed in 1.8.1) when switching from neon to serf
but I am not sure if my problem is related to that.

- I am not sure what SVN server version is used at googlecode, but
according to their FAQ it is 1.6.x. I am mentioning this in case it matters.

- Some reference I found in the Internet:

o https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/tortoisesvn/3kJ-ybLF80A

o http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=4416


Do you think this is a bug?

Should I add it in the SVN bug tracking tool?


Let me know if you need additional information.
