RE: Tortoise SVN not getting Kerberos credentials

Hi Stefan,

I used TortoiseSVN as a client which acquired credentials from Windows AD Kerberos before but I can't remember which version that was. This worked brilliantly, but the latest version doesn't work. I am not certain that this requires server configuration as Firefox (and Internet Explorer) in Windows is able to view the SVN repository.

I have noticed that TortoiseSVN version 1.7 has the saslGSSAPI.dll library whereas the previous version doesn't. However, version 1.7 hangs when I try to access the repository. What are your thoughts on this?
