Hi Frank,
Thanks for your reply. Yes, I am using "svn://" because my TortoiseSVN is on a different machine. Can you tell me how to tell the service to log on as the specific user that I give read/write access? I look at the options for svnserve.exe but I don't see one?
Thanks again!

Hi Betty,

I think it hard to give you a complete answer here:

1. Not using apache - does that mean you are using svn:// or file://
for repository access? There would be some differences here. FWIW, I
don't think you will get two separate prompts (one OS, and another
repository) from Tortoise. Setting something up like that just sounds
messy to me.

2. If you are using file:// access, then I believe this is true for
anyone you want to allow to use the system. If you are using svn://
access, then you can make the repository read/writable by your single
user, and then tell the service to log on as that specific user.
