SVN Port 80 problem

From: Colin Goudie <gommo_at_iinet.net.au>

I'm wanting to use an SVN server to hold source that I can access both from
my home machine and my work machine. Currently I am using a CVS server and
it all works fine.


I installed SVN and using WEBDAV and Apache configured it so it was using
SSLRequireSSL in the Location option in subversion.conf

(SVN is installed on a Fedora Linux box)


From my windows machine @ home, I use TortoiseSVN and I can checkout the
files fine.


However, going to work I found that we block outgoing SSL connections so I
must use plane port 80 SVN.


So I went home, commented out SSLRequireSSL from the Location section in
subversion.conf and now I can't check out from my windows machine.


It is saying REPORT request failed on '/svn/repos/hogs/!svn/vcc/default'

                 REPORT of '/svn/repos/hogs/!svn/vcc/default': 400 Bad
Request (http://my.dns.name.net <http://my.dns.name.net/> )




So I tested a checkout from my Linux machine using straight svn co
http:/.blahblahb and that worked fine.


Now I have a transparent proxy that routes port 80 connections to it. Could
this be causing problems?? Could my incoming connections to SVn via port 80
be going to the proxy server instead?

I am using Monmothas firewall script by the way, that does the routing.


If so, is there a way to configure just SVN on apache to use a different


Hope this was a little clear
