Re: FreeBSD 5.4 issue - can't connect from external client (replicable)

(plain text this time. Sorry Chris)

Jacob -

I start svnserve with the following command

svnserve -d -r /usr/local/svn

Which results in it listening on port 3690, but I believe only tcp6

Netstat -n -p -tcp returns:

cuba# netstat -n -p tcp
Active Internet connections
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address
tcp4 0 0

My reasons for installing from source was because some people who
were helping me out suggested that method. I could very well make
deinstall and make reinstall on that with the port.

As far as the svnserve vs. apache, I was planning on using a
different web interface, so I didn't install the apache module for
it. I will go ahead and try that out.

Thank you for the suggestions.
