It sounds like whatever the problem is, it is entirely to do with your
networking setup, and nothing to do with Subversion.
Do some generic TCP/IP testing and troubleshooting.

On an unrelated note, it's a little bizarre to be running svnserve on an
'http-ish' port like 81. It seems like inviting confusion in the future.
