Checkout to (not from) server

I searched the forum and Google for answers to my question, but
couldn't find anything similar to my problem.

due to security reasons I have to do checkouts/updates from my local
repository to a distant (web) server, and not as usual, vice versa.
Is this possible? I can't see how the command would look like.


I try this here:

svn checkout file:///Users/schwarzer/Documents/subversion_cvs/
geodataportal/trunk svn+ssh://testserver:/www/geodataportal


which results in:

svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///Users/schwarzer/Documents/


svn --version gives me the following:

svn, version 1.2.3 (r15833)
