This has nothing to do with what SVN client you're using and
everything to do with your access method. There are 5 possible
protocols (ok, really 3 since 2 are variations on another pair) for
accessing the repository:

file://
svn://
svn+ssh://
http://
https://

All but file:// work across a network (by design/definition), so as
long as you have a route to the remote host and the right ports open,
you can use any SVN client to access it remotely. And you can access
a single repository with any of these methods assuming the server is
configured for it. I thought this was covered pretty well chapter 6.

Chapter 6 of The Book.
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.serverconfig.multimethod.html
explains how you can access the repository with multiple schemes.
