You probably need to read up on the configuration options for your ADSL

1. Configure your PC/server box to have a static IP address, so that it does
not get one assigned dynamically by your ADSL modem. In my case, my modem's
LAN IP is, and I assigned my subversion server an IP address of

2. In your modem's firewall there should be an option to forward packets on
a specific port (3690 for subversion) to a specific IP. I set it up so that
it forwards packets sent from the outside to port 3690, to my fixed server's
LAN IP address,

3. Finally if your firewall is completely blocking port 3690, you would have
to ensure that packets do get through the ADSL modem. You will need someone
from outside your network to test that for you, while you watch your

First step though is access the subversion from within the LAN, and then try
the outside network.

Good luck.
