Now, when I access this locally using "svn co file:///E:/svn_home/repos
<file:///E:\svn_home\repos> repos", I am able to checkout the repository
When I run a svnserve locally using "svnserve -d -r E:\svn_home\repos", and
then issue a checkout using:
"svn co svn://localhost repos", it works fine.
But when I try to access it thru "svn+ssh://host_name///E:/svn_home/repos
repos" from another machine, I got the following error:
svn: Couldn't determine repository path
When I checked the SSHD logs (I'm using WinSSHD), I got:
Executed "svnserve -t" in Working Directory "C:\Documents and
This indicates that the ssh tunneled worked fine, so I don't know why it is
not able to find the repository.
I even tried all possible URIs like "svn+ssh://host_name//E:/svn_home/repos
repos" , "svn+ssh://host_name/E:/svn_home/repos repos", but I get the same
error for all.
Please Help.
