Hi Ryan and all,
Thank you for your help and I apologize for hitting reply instead of
Basically Ryan told me to RTFM, but in fact the FM was open to just that
page already. I am trying to fix an installation that worked before.
I am using the -i option in my inetd.conf but I never specified the
repo. That is how the manual says to do it. I understand that -r is
an option to tell it root of the repo so that
you can have a shortened path which appends to the root in your .svns in
your various projects. Since I have the full path in the existing
projects I think it will hook up better if I don't alter that.
The fact I can telnet to it on the port tells me the network layer is
working, the ports are open when inetd opens them and the connection is
being made. It's just the client that can't connect. And I discovered
why by doing a svn info. It's because I'm a dyslexic idiot. I opened
ports 3690 as it says. But all my old repos list 3960 that was the port
I was using before and never noticed it was "wrong". So when I changed
my firewall to allow port 3960 everythings hunkie dorie.
