remote svnserve access using tortoise

Hi Si,

Just a final email to say THANK YOU!

NMAP did the trick!

Using it I saw that port 3690 was 'filtered' even after I turned off
the Firewall I was using.

What happened is that I forgot about the Windows Firewall!

Which seemed to be turned on even after I turned it off

I have access now to my repository through svnserve and remotely!

Thank You again,
John M.

Hi John,

Assuming you're entering // instead of \\, it does smell like a
firewall or port forwarding issue.

Grab a copy of nmap or similar and on the client try:

nmap -p3690

assuming you're running off the default svnserve port of 3690, you should see:

3690/tcp open

If state is not open (filtered or closed) then it's more than likely a
network issue.

Actually, a quicker way is to fire up your web browser and enter url:
You should see something like:
( success ( 2 2 ( ) ( edit-pipeline svndiff1 absent-entries
commit-revprops depth log-revprops partial-replay ) ) )

My gut feeling is you have a router that needs port 3690 forwarded to


p.s. this type of question is more suited to the svn users mailing
list rather than TortoiseSVN, but no dramas.
