Connection forcibly closed problem

From: Mcgee, Mark <mark.mcgee_at_credit-suisse.com>

I've set up a subversion repository (1.4.6 + apache) on a windows 2003
machine, running webdav on apache (2.0.63) on port 8080, configured with
basic authentication.

I set up my router to route incoming traffic on port 8080 to my apache

This seems to work fine on my local intranet, but I can't perform
repository operations like checkout over the internet. I can browse the
repository over the internet with a web browser no problem though, but
not with the TortoiseSVN repo-browser.

The error message I get is "OPTIONS of '<my url>': could not read stats
line: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host".
This is an http url, not https. I've browsed all sorts of forums for
this message, but I haven't managed to find anything of use.

I'm not sure if I should be focussing my attention on my NetGear 834
firewall/router/ADSL modem or on the Apache config side of things. I'm
thinking it's a router problem, but I haven't a clue what to try.

I'd appreciate some help on this.
