It has nothing to do with ports. Otherwise you couldn't use your linux
client either and also a checkout wouldn't work. All commands use the
same port.

The only thing that's different for a linux client and a windows one is
the authentication that can be used: a windows svn client also tries
authenticating with sspi, and some routers/proxies 'know' that protocol.
If your windows machine is part of a windows domain, try detaching from
that domain and then try again. If that doesn't work, try an 1.5 svn
client (e.g., TSVN-1.5-beta1) and deactivate the sspi authentication in
the Subversion servers config file.
