[Subclipse-users] Windows integrated authentication question

Hi all,


This is my first message to the list, so apologize for the
inconveniences and my poor english ...

First of all, thanks for the job in this great plugin!


I have installed Subversion + Apache 2 + sspi on Windows XP SP2. My goal
is to configure authentication and authorization for the users from my
domain. When I access to, i.e., http://server/svn/repositoryname with
Internet Explorer of Firefox all is fine. Also using TortoiseSvn it
works great!


But when I try to access from Subclipse it seems that the user
connecting to the repository is not the user logged in. Looking for any
information about the issue I found the next message:


Support for SSPI in Subversion is based in the Neon library, which added

support for SSPI in version 0.25.1 (with the current version being
0.25.4). Developers building Subversion 1.3.0, specifically TortoiseSVN

which is obviously heavily used by Windows Subversion users where this
applies, have discovered massive bugs in the SSPI support. Endless
enormous increases in bandwidth usage, incorrect authentication etc...
Therefore, the JavaHL that I ship with the Windows version of Subclipse
compiled with the SSPI support in Neon turned off. TortoiseSVN has had
make the same change. When/if the problems are resolved in an official
Neon release, we will look into enabling it in our build.
That being said, if neither JavaSVN nor JavaHL are falling back to basic

auth I would think you have a server misconfiguration of some sort.



Is there any new about the question? Are now sspi supported? Could I
achieve integrated authentication in some other way??


Thanks in advance,
