RE: (Tortoise) SVN Repository Backup problem

Hi Madan,
Thanks for the mail. Let me clarify a few things from your mail

1. Yes, a VPN connection would be the best. But I can't connect to
my corporate network from home. At the same time, since I believe in
checking in changes (how much ever small they may be) into the Repo then
and there, I would like to have the same and do check-ins and then
continue with the same Repo in my Office too
2. Due to the above point, http:// and svn:// based access is also
ruled out
3. > do you realize that changes made to the repo at work will not
be visible at your home?
        This is something like a bolt from the blue! As I had already
mentioned, I am newbie to SVN but have good experience in ClearCase. So
I would like to have some education on this. My basic understanding of
SVN seems to suggest that it should be possible (just like in CVS) to
use the Repo

Thanks and rgds,

You dont need a backup to acheive this.... what you need is a http:// or
svn:// based access to access your work repository from home (and that
obviously implies that you should be able to access office machine from
home - maybe via vpn?)
For this, you dont need the repsitory at home. You only need a working
copy at home. For precise definitions, pl. read the book...

so far, so good...

do you realize that changes made to the repo at work will not be visible
at your home?

You need to checkout using tortoisesvn/cmd line svn client to do this...
