Does your company use a proxy server? It may be that it's configured to
only allow "normal" HTTP traffic on port 81 and not WEBDAV, which is
needed for Subversion.

Also you might want to check to which network interface your
svnserve.exe binds. It should be bound to your exterior network
interface (IP-address). If it is bound only to your local interface
(127.0.0.1) then it cannot be contacted from the outside. I think
svnserve by default connects to all interfaces, because it doesn't
support an option to bind it to a port explicitly, but you might want to
check it.

You can also bind a different server program (for instance IIS) to port
81 and see if you can connect to that.

Greetz,
