Hi Alfred, not sure whether TSVN/SVN will do a DNS lookup but if not,
something you could instead is to add your server's name and IP number
to the HOSTS file on the client PC.

For WinXP (and I think Win2K is the same) the hosts file is at:


and is used to do a local lookup before DNS queries.

The format of the file (it's just a text file even though the .txt
is missing) is:

# A line starts with an IP number followed by a host name
# localhost
123.456.789.148 SVNserver

# Or if the repository is on the local PC you can loop it back:
# SVNServer

This can be very useful at times ...
