Demanding Win32 server setup: is there any hope?

Hi All,

I'm working for a client *finally* ready to ditch VSS (hooray!), but
they're a
semi-fanatical Windows shop. I therefore need to:

(1) Run SVN server on Windows (no problem -- seems to work fine)

(2) Provide a GUI interface (TortoiseSVN seems to work well enough)

BUT I've had no luck with

(3) Providing secure remote access.

I tried ssh tunneling first, but the book examples show only public key
logins and I don't think these users will go very well for that. I'd like
to stick with logins (using sshd from Cygwin on the server) and
passwords. I've
done that before and got the login to work fine with an ssh inbound from
box just to get a terminal prompt. But I didn't see how to set the
'command' configuration
to set the 'svnserve' options for passwords.

So I though I'd try Apache. I thought I had it nailed (even though there
were several
pieces to assemble until I found out that the mod_dav.so for Windows
doesn't work
with Apache 2.2.2, at least.

I didn't try 2.0.58; should I? I *could* probably get them all to
install cygwin & do
the public key thing but would rather not if I can escape this. Anybody
doing this
with passwords?

Thanks much for any guidance whatsoever -- I'm really looking forward to
a stake through VSS's evil heart, but I need (3) to work before I can do
