It's not exactly clear what you did and what happened, seeing the actual error
messages would be beneficial, but I can guess one situation that might cause
weird behaviour.

The problem arises when the server-name is different when accessing it from
the local network and from outside. In that case, Subversion doesn't know
that both are in fact the same machines and the same repositories and rightly
refuses to check into one repository something that comes from another

There are two ways around this that I know of:
1. Use 'svn switch --relocate' to inform SVN of the 'moved' repository.
2. Use a virtual tunnel. This works by installing a tunnel from a port on your
own machine to the port of the server. That way, for subversion it is always
a repository on localhost but the tunnel redirects traffic to the real server
via whatever transport is applicable.
