Re: Connecting TSVN to server

I am not using a proxy rather I was pointing out the instruction I was
reading did not seem to cover using your local pc to communicate with the
server. Perhaps I missed it or it is covered elsewhere.

I am asking how do you access the server? I will try this specific setting
instead.

Is this from a shell command line? I do work alone and entering this with
the drive and filename returns file/directory does not exist. But I do not
want to use putty for commands. Aren't the same functions being replicated
with TSVN? I am trying to use TSVN to connect with the server so I can
checkout to a working file on my PC.
