SVN setup on Windows

I have successfully installed SVN (version 1.4.4) and Apache (version 2.0.59)
on windows server 2003 following the steps listed at
Everything works fine with basic authentication but I am having trouble with
SSPI authentication (I dont have a domain set up. I just want to use windows
authentication). I am using mod_auth_sspi (version 1.0.4) available from

The problem I am having is when I browse to http://mydomain.com/svn using
either IE or Firefox I am prompted to enter a user name and password and the
message on the dialog box reads "Connecting to mydomain.com". If I enter the
correct username and password everything works fine but if I enter it wrong
the first time then I get a slightly different dialog box with a message
that says "The server mydomain.com at Subversion repositories requires a
username and password. Warning: This server is requesting that your username
and password be sent in an insecure manner (basic authentication without a
secure connection)". Now at this prompt even if I enter the correct username
and password I dont get authenticated. Can anyone please let me know how to
fix this? Here are my settings in apache httpd.conf file -
<Location /svn>
DAV svn
SVNListParentPath on

AuthName "Subversion repositories"

# NT Domain Logins.
AuthType SSPI
SSPIAuthoritative On
SSPIOmitDomain On
