Re: Unable to connect to Server

Thank you. I will try to do as much as I can, my last day at work is 31 May.
However (I almost like saying this as much as 'but'), the server is on a remote
site and is accessible from my lab workstation. In the lab I have no difficulty
connecting to the server. On the other hand (see 'However', an 'but' above), the
project has been canceled and it is possible that my permission to access the
server was removed. Unlikely but possible.

Thanks Uli. I hope all goes well.

Okay, so it isn't something specific to write accesses.

If you go to the settings of TSVN, there is a button that opens an editor with
that file. That said, I can't find the mentioned setting there, but I wouldn't
necessarily see it if that option was added recently, because the template
used for this configuration file is rather old (several years).

* First thing to try is to rule out the SSH tunnel as error source. Make sure
you can use it to log into the server for normal shell access. Note that if
you output anything from .bashrc or similar files, this will confuse any
tunneling like what SVN uses because it goes through the same channel.
* Log into the server and try to access the repository there, using file://
URLs. Don't modify it in any way, you could mess up file permissions.
* Permissions are also the next point, if someone directly wrote to the
repository, they could have accidentally changed file permissions and/or
ownership. Check that these are correct, e.g. by comparing with a newly-
created repository.
* You could also try to access that newly-created repository to see if it is
something with the repository that is wrong.
* If the server side doesn't turn up any errors, you could try to run
svnserve there and then access the repository through that. Try it both
locally and remotely.
* Similarly, you could try to create one on your desktop machine to see if it
isn't something with TSVN going wrong. This wouldn't test the networking side
though, so it's not a 100% proof if it works.
* Always useful is to test access from a completely different machine.
