It's a bit hard this way for others to see if you applied the change
correctly. I took the time to re-indent your code and compare it to
a 1.4.x backport I did myself. Turns out your code looks OK.

You don't mean filesystem permissions, but firewall configuration, right?

This seems to be a different problem than the one the patch I
proposed is addressing, since you are specifing an IP address

Looking back in the tread, I just realised you also specified an IP
address the first time around ( instead of localhost),
so I was actually misleading you by proposing the patch, which
fixes a problem related to specifying a hostname, not an IP.

Sorry, I should have read your mail more carefully. :(

You might want to check the firewall configuration on the machine you
are trying to connect to, and verify that svnserve is really running
on the server, and listening on the default port (3690 I believe).
