Thanks. Do people need to enter password to establish SVN connection in
your case? Plus, SVN will cache the passwords. It is a security concern.

You *might* have better luck with KrbMethodNegotiate Off and possibly
KrbMethodK5Passwd on. You might not, but it works for me :-)

Subject: linux subversion client with Kerberos


Hello forks,


Basically I am looking for a linux subversion client which can do
Kerberos authentication with Windows Active Directory. I've search the
mail list archive and could not find one. Any help would be highly


My SVN server is configured as Apache/Kerberos authentication. Currently
I've successfully got Windows SVN client working.


<Location /svn>

   DAV svn

   SVNParentPath /var/www/svn/

   AuthzSVNAccessFile /var/www/svn/repos/conf/authz



          AuthType Kerberos

          AuthName "Kerberos Login"

          KrbMethodNegotiate On

          KrbMethodK5Passwd Off

          KrbAuthRealms EXAMPLE.COM

          require valid-user



Below is version of my SVN server and windows client.

1) subversion server

centos 5.1 i386





2) Windows Client (working)

Windows XP SP3

TortoiseSVN 1.4.0, Build 7501 - 32 Bit , 2006/09/15 21:34:55

Subversion 1.4.0,

apr 0.9.12

apr-iconv 0.9.7

apr-utils 0.9.12

berkeley db 4.4.20

neon 0.25.5
