Hi. This is my first time doing this so forgive me if this has problem
has been tackled recently. I searched the mail list but didn't find
exactly what I'm looking for.

Here's where I'm at. I'm using Fedora Core 2 on a pc plugged into a
WAP11 that's connected to a Linksys wireless router going to my comcast
cable modem. I am able to access the repository locally. But when I
attempt to do so via the net I keep getting connection refused. I don't
know what I'm doing wrong. I have my firewall / router accepting /
passing along the correct port. (I don't *think* that's my problem as I
love bit torrent and I've successfully poked a hole for that to get

Here's what I've tried:
PERMISSIONS. I was unable to access the db locally and had to change
file permissions. Everything is 777 inside of /home/secretsvn (that's
where the db is). Local access now functioning but I'm concerned about

CONNECTION REFUSED. When trying to connect via net I get this error:
[eric@playpen110 working]$ svn update
svn://caffeinated.homelinux.net:3690/home/secretsvn/lookHere cpp
svn: 'svn://caffeinated.homelinux.net:3690/home/secretsvn' is not a
working copy.
So what am I writing this command incorrectly?
Okay, let's try this:
$ svn log svn://caffeinated.homelinux.net:3690/home/secretsvn/lookHere
svn: Can't connect to host 'caffeinated.homelinux.net': Connection refused

IS SVNSERVE RUNNING CORRECTLY? Let's start it again. Maybe
my entries in xinetd.conf and /ect/services aren't working correctly.
$ svnserve -i
( success ( 1 2 ( ANONYMOUS ) ( edit-pipeline ) ) )
Mmnn... no mention of svnserve already running, but then again nobody
can connect to it. Well, I still get the same connection refused error. :(

Here's what I did in the files:
# [general]
anon-access = none
auth-access = write

### [users]
password-db = /home/secretsvn/lookHere/conf/passwd

realm = erics javaland

### this file is called passwd
friend = testing

So, what silly mistake am I making? Is there something I forgot? Do
you need more info? Would any logs help? Any ideas / links very welcome.
