[TSVN] desperately seeking help

I realize this is completely OT but this is a last resort, I need to gather
some evidence before I approach the people who manage my Polytechnics

I have a rather large problem, I am doing my third year project at my
polytechnic (when we get together with a client and build a system) I
debated & won the right to use svn to manage all our documentation & source
code - (you know encourage good habits).

So I set everything up on my home server (svn over apache) & it has been
working flawlessly since june (when I set it up) this is apart form the fact
that "broadband" in New Zealand is considered to be 128k so it's a bit slow.

But over the past week I have found that I cannot access my svn server from
my polytechnics network when using TortoiseSVN. An example of the errors I
have been getting:
  "PROPFIND request failed could not connect to server ..."

was the result of attempting to use "show log".

All this is while I have absolutely no problems trying to access my svn
server using a web-browser.

btw everything works fine inside my own network.

As it turns out my svn server isn't even receiving any packets when you run
any of TortoiseSVN's commands.

All this has made me come up with the theory that my Polytechnics Network
admins have told their protocol sniffing hardware (very expensive I might
add) to deny everything going out onto the wide world using web-dav.

To test this theory I am pleading with some of the kind folks here to fire
up their favorite svn client and point it to
& reply to me off the list as to what response you get - hopefully it works
otherwise I will get rather worried, because absolutely NOTHING has changed
on my server.

Thanks all.
