Re: accessing an external-HD repo via windows

I'm running into a snag on the initial setup of svnserve on my vista

I used the windows svn installer to get svn and then ran >svnserve
--daemon. I created a repo, >svnadmin create c:\testrepo. Then I
created a test project folder c:\testproj.

But I can't figure out how to import the testproj.

Using tortoisesvn, I right-click on testrepo and find "import". There I
have tried all manner of syntax for the URL such as,
svn://localhost/c:/testproj, but I get errors stating that either the
syntax is wrong or the repository does not exist.

You may ask why I am not using the file:// protocol since it is a local

I read that one should never use Berkeley DB repositories with windows
network shares. Long term, I plan to commit to this repository from
various windows computers via windows-shares, so I want to be sure that
I always go through svnserve using the native filesystem. From what
I've read the file:// protocol implies using Berkeley DB. Though this
is all a little unclear.

Could someone please send an example of how to refer by URL to a local
repository via the svn:// protocol? I would also appreciate an example
of how to structure the URL when I later want to checkout
<vistacomputer>/testproj from <xpcomputer> when they are on the same
local network.

Thanks a ton,
