RE: Windows based installs

I wasn't really wanting to put the repository on C: primarily for space
considerations (F: is the data drive and substantially larger!), so I moved
the subversion install to the F: drive and fired it up:
        f:\Subversion\bin>svnserve.exe -i -r f:\svnroot\Norwescon

Which results in:
        ( success ( 1 2 ( ANONYMOUS ) ( edit-pipeline ) ) )

From another machine, I use...
        d:\svnroot>svn co svn:///nwcsvn.clarkzoo.org/development

Which results in:
        svn: Can't connect to host '': No connection could be made because
the target machine actively refused it.

The fact that SVN tells me it's host '' makes me wonder if I got something
wrong here because when I ping nwcsvn.clarkzoo.org, the responses come back
nice and quick.

I might be able to test this on my work (Windows) computer later today. The
only thing that stands out to me is that you're running svnserve with
SVNService from C: for a repository on F:. Otherwise, everything looks fine
to me. Have you tried to run the same set of commands but with the
repository on C:?

Good luck,
