Here are the tests I'd run:

1. Can you ssh to the ip_address without a password? (If not, fix sshd,
or use public keys and ssh_agent to avoid the need for passwords, etc.)

2. Can you run the "svnserve --version" command on the server, direct
from the client, i.e.

ssh ip_address svnserve --version

If not, fix the path to svnserve that your ssh connection gets.

3. Can you get file: access to work on the server, after using ssh to
get there? (If not, maybe you've got file permission problems.)

4. Do you have an SVN_SSH environment variable defined, but defined
incorrectly? (Or is it SVNSSH? Or is it in a subversion config file?
I forget.)
