Re: Connecting TSVN to server

Clearly I am confused.

Yes I do have a repository set up on my local machine and it seems to be
working just fine, including externals. I would now like to checkout working
files to folders on a server with TSVN.

My confusion stems from local drive terminology used in the manuals. The
term sometimes seems to refer to the server and other times your local
machine. Adding to the confusion is where the repository should reside. I am
working alone for now and do not have the need to host svn on my server for
others to checkout folders and files. I figured I could use TSVN on my local
machine while I learn svn and not worry about messing with the server
environment. Although at this point I seem to better grasp the concepts of
working in the server environment with command line entries than on a local
machine with TSVN. But I know from my past experiences that if frequency of
use drops of it is easier to remember how to use a GUI than recalling
commands. That is where TSVN holds its attraction for me.

My bigger question is how is TSVN typically used? As a client for working
copies or for setting up a repository on a local machine. Can others
checkout and commit from a local machine? Is the local machine somehow setup
as a server for others to communicate with? I also have an installation of
WAMP on my local machine so I do have apache available.
