OK, ask and I'll try and provide it...

Why can't you connect using
> TortoiseSVN? What error message do you get?
depends on how I try to access the server - usually something like
"cannot connect to server" or " seerver unexpectedly disconnected" and
occasionally "connection actively refused"

I'm flailing around in the dark a bit here.

Are you also using the

well, no, because file:/// only works on local hdd's right (no NFS or
samba here)?

basically this is the first step into building a small secure system.
so starting with just svn: or maybe svn+ssh://

on the BSD svn server I have svnserve running either as a deamon or as
an inetd service. - in either case local file:/// method works. in
both cases cannot get a connection to the box as svn or svn+ssh (this
is a headless box that I SSH into BTW - so the network is connected.)

 If so,

How do I do that (from the winXP box)?

 Is the

Um. I don't understand the question. the server should accept svn
incoming services, right? inetd handles the call and involces svnserve
_or_ the deamon recognises the incoming svn or svn over ssh
connection? have I missed a step?

I don';t know where the problem lies. If you could let me know where
the tortise SVn email list is at I'd be happy to sub to that too.
