RE: SVNSERVE -d not starting on Windows 2003 Server

Thanks for the info.
I was worried that the server was not starting properly because there was no
message displayed and I did not know how to check the status.

It leaves you somewhat hanging when you hit enter after typing in the
command line and nothing happens except that the cursor goes to the next
line and blinks. That usually means something has gone wrong.

You are correct with your advice about trying to use IE.
I don't know what I was thinking - maybe I can blame the late hour...

I started using the SVN client commands and got "svn cat
svn://site/proj/foo.txt" to work which was the breakthrough to know that the
server was up and going. I have since downloaded the TortoiseSVN client and
I am up and going just fine.

I even downloaded the Windows Service wrapper mentioned in the TortoiseSVN
documentation. I will try this soon. I will be much happier running
svnserve as a service anyhow.

Thanks for taking the time to respond.
Best regards

IE doesn't talk the svn protocol (it talks the http protocol). Try using
  the svn client: svn ls svn://localhost/reponame
