-=> My requirements are as follows.
-=> 1) The SVN repository should be on Windows
-=> 2) No Apache
-=> 3) No SSH
-=> 4) Simple authentication mechanism (password file is ideal
-=> OR Windows
-=> authentication) as we trust everybody over here ;-)
-=> 5) Ability to check in files into the repository from
-=> remote clients (i.e.,
-=> from clients not running on the server hosting the repository)

Hi again Anoop,

Sorry my previous email wasn't very helpful,
it looks like you've done all the right things,
and it _definitely_ is possible as our team
has been using that exact setup for nearly a
year now...

Your setup looked okay to me, perhaps the only
thing I could see that might cause confusion
was your reference to "Test Realm", did removing
that help?

Does this work:

// svnserve.conf
[general]
anon-access = none
auth-access = write
password-db = passwd.conf

// passwd.conf
[users]
user1 = password1
user2 = password2

-=> I did check out websvn as well, but to my understanding, it
-=> only provides a read-only view of the repository.

True, TortoiseSVN is the way to go for a windows client,
but WebSVN is really neat for browser viewing, and having
all the log messages appear in an RSS feed is very cool.

Good luck!

peace
si
