RE: Using tortoise with network share repository

Thanks for the quick reply.
So if I use the file protocol (without setting it up as a server), do I still need to install subversion on the machine where the repository is held or do I just install TortoiseSVN on each client machine?
I also noticed that you said parts of the repository would be read-only: which parts would that be?
I don't mind all members of my team being able to administer the repository since we're a small team. We are using FSFS file system so that's ok + we have full firewalls in place so that's ok.
-There may be a requirement in future for developers to access the repository remotely e.g. via VPN: would this require a server set-up?
You do not need to install the subversion command line client on each machine, Tortoise will work just fine.
In regard to VPN access: As long as the VPN is correctly configured they should have access to the repo just like anyone else on the network.
p.s. -- Sorry about the crappy formatting... this is my work outlook account (and I'm too lazy to fix it).
