The best is first to answer inline :

I made test on free access, with credentials manual and auto. I could access all the concerned repositories.

No proxy known till now (I found a not "declared" proxy which is a part of the firewall 01/11/2012 3:00 GMT+1 (Paris)),

Thanks, this eliminates cases.
In fact it is exactly as a lock by a firewall, and TortoiseSVN client failing any http or access to port 80 (without report by the firewall).

Last news : 01/11/2012 3:00 GMT+1 (Paris)
So I made the simple test that I forgot, I apologize : I cutoff the firewall and everything have been ok.
The problem is now, how to setup in a right way the rules of the firewall, I can control and change what I want (program launched by, access port etc..., more the support for the firewall is perfect). But I must know which programs must be allowed for what on which ports.

(for example SVN.exe can be fully allowed, this let everything locked).
Around (redacted before last news)

I made since the beginning a checkup of all the installation :
1- Because I began to install SVN server and SSL : I check if something was running about : no it is completely clean. But I will install the server mode and set a proxy in the future
2- The lonely remaining :
  - As the computer is used as a server for several purposes, it is important to note :
     a- I have updated Apache to 2.4.2 from 2.2.17
     b- I have changed the firewall : So if it does not report Locking soft or port, may be ? So I think that I must set clearly the rules for SVN TSVN : process names, port (In my knowledge 80 and 443 for SSL)

Before I install SVNServe there is no service to run to make TSVN function, I do believe so.

I could not find for the moment these informations :

" how to open a firewall for TortoiseSVN "

This is an important element of the installation process.
I have not found a place which tells about this subject directly, only with SVNServe and not clear at all (forum discussions without synthesis).
So I could redact it, if you agree, when I will have got and test all these informations.

Best regards


note : With Win7 I am quite sure that I would have found the problem using the Events manager and the capability to set markers. Feature which doesn't exist with XP, so it was, in a way, a trick for me, because I uses win7 for the devs and never stops the firewall on the server in any case (create a test platform...).
