RE: anon-access none and svn cat

Sorry, turned out to be my fault indeed. Running SVN on another machine did
result in the password being asked. Furthermore, when I changed
svn://myhost:3691/ to svn://myip:3691/ it also asked for the password. It
seems the password is indeed cached somewhere, though I have not yet figured
out where (could not find a .subversion directory). Either way, issue
solved...

Subject: anon-access none and svn cat

Hi everyone,

thanks to those who helped me with my previous problem I now have two
SubVersion servers running using inetd. One of those is meant for public
access, one for private projects (using a different port). That part works,
they use seperate root directories as specified. However, on the private
server it seems I can do an "svn cat" on a repository which specifically
sets "anon-access=none" in it's svnserve.conf...

The --root is set to /repos/private/. In this path I did an "svnadmin create
/repos/private/myproject/" (making a seperate repository for each project)
and added the following lines to svnserve.conf (actually, svnserve.conf is a
hardlink to /repos/private.conf, though that shouldn't be a problem since it
reads the password-db just fine on a commit):

---
[general]
anon-access=none
auth-access=write
password-db=/repos/private.passwd
realm=Private
---
To test it I ran "svn cat svn://myhost:3691/myproject/trunk/myfile" from an
external machine running Windows 2000. The directory I ran this command in
did not contain any .svn folder, so it doesn't seem like it remembered my
login information. I'm quite sure it's just a simple error on my side, but I
can't figure out what...
Thanks in advance,
- Mark
