RE: [TSVN] Can't connect to host

[this should probably be in the svn users mailing list]

-> I'm trying to do an SVN commit, but it says "Can't connect to host
-> <IP address>: No connection could be made because the target machine
-> actively refused it."

So a guess would be either your svn server isn't running or it's being
blocked by something (firewall, incorrect NAT/port forwarding)

-> TortoiseSVN is only a client, right? Would anyone know how I might go
-> about finding where the SVN server files on my machine are (like what
-> are the names of some SVN servers that run on Windows)?

If it's in the default area look in C:\Program Files\Subversion\bin
(svnserve.exe for ra_svn and mod_dav_svn.so for ra_dav)

If it's svnserve (default port 3690) look in your list of processes to
see if it's running, most people also like to run SVNService on Windows
(or maybe firedaemon), so look in the services list to ensure it's running
(sc query | grep SVN), or run netstat -a | grep 3690 and see if 3690 is
listening. If it's not SVNservice, then with patience netstat -a -b
should show you what's running.

My guess is the server has been rebooted, SVNservice by default starts
in manual rather than automatic mode, thus svnserve.exe isn't running
(probably a good idea to change SVNservice to start automatically)

good luck
