Have you tried telneting to the svn port on your host? You should see a
string like the following:
  ( success ( 1 2 ( ANONYMOUS ) ( edit-pipeline ) ) )

If you don't see that then the connection isn't making it through. FWIW, I've
done this with my machine, and it works like a champ. I would try a couple
of things to make sure you're actually reaching your box. For instance, try
using dig or nslookup to fetch your external IP address, and make sure it's
correct. I would try telneting with both your network name and the IP
address to make sure that works. If you see the above string, then try the
client. All should go well at that point.
