Re: Subversion Through MS-ISA Proxy?

I'm trying to set up subversion on a linux box (debian sarge) which is
in a LAN behind a Microsoft ISA firewall/proxy server, and I'm having
trouble. I've added the lines

http-proxy-host =
http-proxy-port = 8080

to $HOME/.subversion/servers, but when I try a checkout external to
the LAN, e.g.

svn checkout http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk subversion

I get the message

svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/repos/svn/trunk'
svn: PROPFIND of '/repos/svn/trunk': could not connect to server

I've examined the ISA server configuration in some detail, and AFAIK,
the only component that should be performing by-method filtering of
HTTP is the URLScan filter, which is turned off. (I turned it on and
added the method set found at
http://subversion.tigris.org/project_faq.html#http-methods to its
allowed methods list, but that didn't help either.)

I know this box can reach the outside world, because debian's apt-get
system works just fine. (It asked for proxy information during the OS
install, and I gave it the same thing I'm giving SVN.)

I'm stumped at this point. Can anyone give me a hand?

Check, if you do not have NTLM authorization turned on in your server. If
accidentally you have this option turned on and cann't switch server to
"basic authentication", you can only install Dimitri Rozmanov's NTLM
Authenication Proxy Server (http://www.geocities.com/rozmanov/ntlm/) and use it as intermediate proxy.
