Re: Manual username/password (Error: Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to OPTIONS)

We are going off-topic now. Those server settings are beyond our
control.

So assuming we can't change the server, command-line svn with --
username --password is the only option?

Why can't tortoiseSVN add a username button and add this --username --
password when doing the request?
Thanks,
Erwin
