The client and server operating systems are irrelevant: svnserve is
portable, and so is the svn client. You're doing everything right, as

Your configuration above looks correct to me, so I'm puzzled as to why
svnserve isn't sending an authn challenge to the client.

How are you running svnserve? Is it running as a background daemon
('svnserve -d')?

Where is the passwd.conf file? Is it in the same directory as
svnserve.conf, within repos/conf/ ? It should be, according to your

How are you accessing with the client? 'svn checkout svn://host/...'?
