RE: Port 81 setup with svnserve

Since I run IIS that has sites that listen on port 80, svnserve won't listen
on the same port. It would be fine if I could use host headers and have it
listen on a specific header, but it wouldn't work.

Being somewhat ignorant to TCP/IP testing, do you have anything you'd
recommend to debug or trace the issue?

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.
