cannot authenticate with svnserve

Hi there,

I am new to Subversion, but everything works fine except:

I have set up svnserve as a service ( but also tried my issue without
service ) in WinXP. I can read and write as long as I have specified:

anon-access = write

and still read with:

anon-access = read

This is ok, so far. But if authentication is necessary because I specify:

anon-access = none

and try to read, the server seems not to accept my login information.
The following is happening in the authentication process:

C:\Data\Ingo\test>svn list svn://localhost
Anmeldebereich: <svn://localhost:3690> My First Repository
Passwort für 'inold':

I am prompted for a password for a user which is not in the password file (
doesn't matter if I put it in ). I guess this is for my convenience. The
client uses my system-login name. But I have not read this in the docs.
Now I can try what I want. I tried to put my system-login name into the
password file, and then only typed the password, I tried another name and
then escaped from the first password request and typed my name and password
in the second request. After three times it says:

svn: Authentication error from server: Username not found

I tried svn.exe and TortoiseSVN, locally and remote, the server as a
service and directly. It is always the same behaviour.

Btw, I start the server with the following command:

svnserve -d -r C:\Data\Ingo\svndb

Can anyone help??

Ingo
