WG: Problem accessing repository through authentificated proxy

From: Paul Chlebek <pc_at_chlebek.eu>

The entries in the servers file are correct,
they even work fine with subclipse,
but not with the tortoise client, which reads the same servers

http-proxy-host = proxy.XXX
http-proxy-port = 8080
http-proxy-username = XXX0842
http-proxy-password = XXXln08

What else can i do to resolve the problem.
The funny thing is, that subclipse works during
the tortoise client does not. I tested it with an
older tortoise client - version 1.2.6 made it through
the proxy, later versions starting with e.g. 1.3.5 do not.
Thanks for further help.

I think you need to be in the servers config file in
%APPDATA%\Subversion. See
