said... It just boggles the mind how it works from command line svn but not

'target machine actively refused it' usually means that either the svn
service isnt running or a firewall | antiviri | viri is getting in the way.

i dont know what slicksvn is (google didnt help) but both the command line
and tsvn use the same code to talk to the server.

double check to see if there is anything that could get in the way.

Hi All,


Any help would be greatly appreciated.


I have just installed SlickSVN 1.5 on my new windows 2008 box. I set up
svnserve as a windows service. I can do a checkout using "svn checkout
svn://localhost/test c:\test" from the command line on the local machine.
However, when I try to connect to the same repo, also from the local machine
using TortoiseSVN, I get "Can't connect to host 'localhost': No connection
could be made because the target machine actively refused it." I'm running
TortoiseSVN 1.5.3, Build 13783 - 64 Bit.


The fact that I can do the same operation that fails in Tortoise from the
command line leaves me dumbfounded.
