> Hello, I used Tortoise before at work over the Internet, but now I want to set it up at home. I did start svnserve as a Windows service, but now I am having trouble connecting to it. The Tortoise manual in the section on svnserve, says:

The server is your PC, so that is what you are trying to identify, not
the name of the svnserve program running on it. 'localhost' is always
used to refer to your own machine, so that would work.

Or as Uli mentioned, if you are a single user on a single PC you can
safely use file:// protocol on a local drive.
