Thanks for taking the time to check this Stefan; as you've confirmed
that it does work I retried the following:

I created a repository from scratch and setup it up as a service:

sc create svnserve binpath= "d:\svn\bin\svnserve.exe --service --root
D:\svn\testRepro" displayname= "Subversion" depend= tcpip start= auto

svnserve.conf (in D:\svn\testRepro\conf) contains:


I created a new user:

saslpasswd2.exe -c -f "D:\svn\testRepro\sasldb" -u home jonus

sasldblistusers2 -f "D:\svn\testRepro\sasldb"


jonus_at_home: userPassword

I have the following in the registry:


svn.conf (in D:\svn\testRepro) contains:

pwcheck_method: auxprop
auxprop_plugin: sasldb
mech_list: DIGEST-MD5
sasldb_path: D:\svn\testRepro\sasldb

I then enter svn://localhost into the repro browser:

if I set use-sasl to false I get an expected 'No access allowed to
this repository' message as anon-access is set to none.
if I set use-sasl to true with min-encryption set to 1 I get an
authentication diaglog: <svn://localhost:3690> home
I enter the username of jonus_at_home & the password, check save
authentication and hit ok; this accesses the repository fine.

As far as I can see the username, password & realm are setup fine and
I must be using SASL authentication as the user jonus only exists in
the sasldb and anon-access is set to none. If seesm to only be a
problem with the encrpytion not the authentication.

If I change min-encryption to 128 I get the error: SASL(-1): generic
failure: Unable to find a callback: 2

I've gone over the instructions multiple times and can see nothing to
change, can you see anything I've missed? Thanks for you help.
