Set up an apache server with SSL, in addition to your svnserve.
https:// tends to go through firewalls without a hitch.

Another option is to give system accounts to your partners, and let
them in via svn+ssh://. Or have them set up an ssh tunnel (ssh -L),
and run normal svn:// protocol over the tunnel.
