Re: subversion across strict corporate firewall

you may have the same problem we had: We ran into an issue trying to
get Subversion to get through our corporate proxies while the web
browsers could get through. It turned out that the issue wasn't the
proxy blocking anything but the subversion team recently changing the
location of the proxy settings and TortoiseSVN not yet taking that into
account. You can fix it in the registery itself. See for details:

Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Tigris.org\Subversion\servers\global,
you need to set the following fields (all of type "reg_sz"):
http-proxy-host, http-proxy-password, http-proxy-port, http-proxy-username.

Hope this helps,
