URL problem when committing files over network

I have subversion set up so I can access my repository over a local network.
I can checkout and update my working copies no problem but I run into an
error when I try to commit my working copies to the repository.
I have tried to commit my files using the following command:
>>> svn commit -m "comment"
And from this I got the following error:
>svn: Commit failed (details follow)
>svn: Authorization failed
I am not sure if this error is caused because I did not specify the location
on the other computer where the repository is actually stored or if it is
something else.

I have also tried another form of the commit command:
>>>svn commit svn//***IP***//root/svn/repos -m "comment"
And from this I got the following error:
>svn: Can't check path 'svn:\\***IP***\root\svn\repos': The filename,
directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
I have no idea what could be wrong with the path that I provided as that is
the same path that I use to checkout the working copy and it works to check
it out. Also all of the cases of the letters are the proper case (lower
instead of upper) so it is not a problem with case-(in)sensitivity.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
