Cannot access repository remotely (sort of)

Hi there,
I'm running Subversion (compiled from sources) on a Mac Mini, using
Mac OS X client 10.4.3. However, I don't believe this problem is
specific to the mac platform. (but I could be wrong)

On the server I run svnserve --daemon --root=Path/To/Repos; Using my
appropriate paths... svnserve is run as user=svn a restricted user.

1) If I try to access the repository ON the server using local host -
it works

2) If I try to access the repository from a machine on my network,
using my domain name, like so svn://www.schankopolis.com/Project,
Then I get an error that says "svn: Can't connect to host
'www.schankopolis.com': Address already in use", but only after I hit
ctrl-c to break out of the call. Otherwise it will just time out.

3) However!, if I use the bonjour name for the remote computer (we
happen to be on the same subnet) as so: svn://cooper.local/Project it
will work fine.

Does anyone know why I get this error and how I can fix it? I assume
that with the situation as it is, no users off my subnet will be able
to access the repository using my domain name.

Note: Both Apache(1.3) at http://www.schankopolis.com, and Tomcat at
htttp://www.schankopolis.com:8080 work fine, so it isn't something
flaky about my domain name.

Thanks for any suggestions,
John Schank
