RE: Svn via Apache

Is this something to be fixed on my proxy server or Apache (or both)? We
already know that there are proxy issues with Apache - our install
didn't come with mod_proxy modules. Will installing these fix the
PROPFIND problem or do I need to get a hold of my network people?

That's the classic symptom of a web proxy blocking WebDAV requests.

Your web browser works because it only issues http GET. The svn client
issues PROPFIND and a whole bunch of other interesting request methods.
