Re: Apache2, authenticated Proxy and Subversion-Bug?

If I set a proxy there - then the requests are all ok. The problem occures
only if I do not use a proxy in Tortoise and the Subversion-Server has
mod_proxy loaded and secured.

The proxy is not used to connect to the repository - the proxy is only the same machine.

The problem only appears with tortoisesvn - normal "svn diff" command
works perfectly with and without setting a proxy for svn. So it must be
some kind of bug in tortoise.

I changed the apache configuration to get 403 instead of 407 - now it
says "cannot get lock information for file.xyz: 403 Forbidden"

The problem is: I can't give away proxy passwords to all users to
operate on those repositories. That would make the proxy-authentication
useless.

Regards
Florian
