Re: User name blank for Tortoise SVN users

Hi Nikki:

I just setup svn and Tsvn. (thanks to everyone who helped) If you're using svn
through Tsvn (TortoiseSVN) impose a userid/pw in your svnserve.conf file. Tsvn
will prompt you for userid and pw, with a checkbox for keeping the
authentication info. Make sure you check that. It'll save the info in

If you need to enter a different user, delete the file in that directory, and
it'll prompt you again for userid/pw.

The point is, using Tsvn, it'll only challenge you once for the userid/pw.
