Problem with subversion under apache.

From: David Braendler <davidb_at_cvs.com.au>

    I have set up subversion to run under apache. Its OK on the LAN .. I
can browse the repository using a browser, and I can check projects out
using the command line, or using tortoisesvn.

 From the outside it is a different story though They are able to browse
the repository using a web browser, but when trying to download the
project using svn or tortoisesvn the following error message is generated

svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/SVN/myproj'
svn: PROPFIND of '/SVN/myproj': could not connect to server

In the http file I have the following

<Location /SVN/myproj>
   DAV svn
   SVNPath c:\SVN\myproj
   AuthType Basic
   AuthName "Subversion Repository"
   AuthUserFile c:\SVN\EVP100FPGA\passwd\passwords
   Require valid-user

Yes I'm using windows. I am also using plone, and I have virtual hosting
going on, but if SVN is in the url it gets directed to the SVN directory :

NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *:80>
   ServerName XXX.XXX.XX.XX
   RewriteEngine on
   RewriteRule ^/SVN(.*) - [L]
   RewriteRule ^/(.*)$1

As I said this is fine to check out/browse from the LAN and fine to
browse from the wider world.

Looking through the logs for apache there is nothing there that looks
like it is connected with this problem. Looking at the logs for apache
access.log and error.log there is nothing there that looks bad. There is
this though:

[Sun May 29 19:12:34 2005] [notice] Apache/2.0.54 (Win32) SVN/1.1.4
DAV/2 configured -- resuming normal operations
[Sun May 29 19:12:34 2005] [notice] Server built: Apr 16 2005 14:25:31

[Sun May 29 19:12:35 2005] [notice] Child 528: Child process is running
[Sun May 29 19:12:35 2005] [notice] Child 528: Acquired the start mutex.
[Sun May 29 19:12:35 2005] [notice] Child 528: Starting 250 worker threads.

I can't find any log files for subversion (do they exist?? if so
where??) Can someone point me to where I should look further??
