Out of curiosity, what's the result of the following?
svn ls http://mysite:/mySim1/

Secondly, the two checkouts you list will not work, because they're both
trying to checkout into the same location (as you note). If you want to
check them both out, you need to specify something other than . as the

This should be equivalent to:
mkdir simsDir; cd simsDir
svn checkout file:////scratch/hapol/svnroot/trunk mySim1
svn checkout file:////scratch/hapol/svnroot2/trunk mySim2

Does that work? If so, then the problem's in the http access (which I
suspect), rather than the checkout itself.
