RE: how to connect to svnserve? what's the URL?

It depends on what mechanism you actually want to setup. Nice thing about
SVN is its fairly flexible.


Setting svnserve up as a daemon itself provides little "protection",
authentication or encryption. Don't make the mistake I did of getting one
system up and running without assessing the actual needs..


Ask yourself this:


- Will sensitive documents be stored here? (Any legal requirements
to encrypt/protect - English Data Protection Act can come into play here).

- Is the network secured (LAN & WAN) ? Does it need to be? Are you
concerned about anyone snooping the network? If it isn't, then do you need
to ensure the data transfer is protected?

- Will it be accessed outside of the company (shared with partners


SVN can work with SSH, Apache (HTTP + HTTPS). All of which have pros/cons..
See the book for details on each.
