I'm not quite following your setup. You do realize that mapped drives exist
only in the context of a logged in user? For svnserve, you'll need to
specify a UNC path and ensure the account that is running svnserve has
access permissions to the UNC path. I hope you're using gigabit ethernet.
I'd recommend you start with storing your repo local to the server to get
started. Get one thing working at a time.

Yeah, unfortuantely, I understand completely. This is precisely the
situation I was describing. Regardless, it's not clear if you have a
distinct working copy from the "dev server" or not. Please clarify your

Did you follow the specific instructions in the svn book for svnserve? For
example, what do the following commands do, assuming the svn binaries are in
svnadmin create c:\tmp\svn
svnserve -d -r c:\tmp\svn
You should be able to use either the svn client or TortoiseSVN to connect to
svn://localhost and view the repo. You won't be able to make any changes
though until you either add yourself to C:\tmp\svn\conf\passwd or enable
anonymous changes in svnserve.conf.
