RE: Re: TSVN & Apache & SSPI & SSL problems

Hi Stefan,

Yes, my client is using the very latest versions of Subversion 1.5.3 and TSVN 1.5.4. I did not build it. I downloaded the binaries from tigris.org. The server is running 1.5.2. But I would not expect that to account for my TSVN issue since my svn 1.5.3 client can authenticate to the 1.5.2 server.

Yes, I am trying this from the very same machine, my desktop computer.

The $ at the end of my SVNParentPath directive is the nomenclature to denote a hidden Windows file share. I should note that I was able to open my repositories with TSVN perfectly fine prior to adding the directives to authenticate using the PDC. But we don't want to run anonymously.

I am certain my computer is a member of our domain. It's required here.

I was not expecting that I would have to enter my domain/username to authenticate with SSPIOmitDomain on. But it failed when I entered just my username so I gave it a try with domain and username and it worked. This is from my svn console window so it leads me to believe my problem is TSVN:

> svn info http://vc-1/svn/myrepo
Authentication realm: <http://vc-1:80> Subversion repositories
Password for 'gillis_p': ********
Authentication realm: <http://vc-1:80> Subversion repositories
Username: mydomain\gillis_p
Password for ' mydomain\gillis_p': ********
Path: myrepo
URL: http://vc-1/svn/myrepo
Repository Root: http://vc-1/svn/myrepo
Repository UUID: be8097fc-3112-874e-b525-a36b8ade6167
Revision: 300
Node Kind: directory
Last Changed Rev: 300
Last Changed Date: 2008-10-16 16:04:16 -0400 (Thu, 16 Oct 2008)

Do you have any other suggestions? I'm stumped!
