Re: Weird SVN Auth issue -- Using Radius?

From: James Richardson <jrichardson_at_x-iss.com>

Hi all,

It appears I've resolved my issue. It appears it was from the loading of
the mod_auth_radius module from:
http://www.freeradius.org/mod_auth_radius/ . Once this module was
uninstalled I could then use basic htpasswd authentication. I then tried
mod_auth_xradius from
http://www.outoforder.cc/projects/apache/mod_auth_xradius/ and it
appears to be working.

What's interesting is that the module from freeradius.org wouldn't even
communicate with my radius server (I identified this by doing a
tcpdump). So somewhere the module was failing early on.

Thanks for all of you help.
