RE: svnserve setup not working

Thanks for the guidance. Unfortunately I'm still not getting something

I simplified authz to
* = r

just to work through problems one at a time. I'll work through authz

On the repository server cw3d, I use the command:
> svnserve --root=/svn/cw3 --foreground -X

My repository is /svn/cw3, with the authz file in /svn/cw3/conf (other
repositories are planned for /svn/other)

On that server, when I do an "svn info file:///svn/cw3/prod/" I get:
Path: prod
URL: file:///svn/cw3/prod
Repository Root: file:///svn/cw3
Repository UUID: 99a12dce-d69b-11dc-9272-dfb642a41e62
Revision: 198
Node Kind: directory
Last Changed Author: plibrm
Last Changed Rev: 195
Last Changed Date: 2008-08-06 15:00:06 -0700 (Wed, 06 Aug 2008)

On the client machine, I use the command:
> /opt/subversion/bin/svn co --username plibrm --password asdf
svn://cw3d/svn/cw3/prod .
svn: URL 'svn://cw3d/svn/cw3/prod' doesn't exist
The URL line from svn info suggests this would be the correct path to

a) If I repeat exactly this same test, but on the server I use the
> svnserve --root=/svn/cw3 --foreground -i
then on the client I get
svn: Can't connect to host 'cw3d': A remote host refused an attempted
connect operation.
Is there something wrong with this svnserve command? ("svnserve
--root=/svn/cw3 --daemon" also works -- only the foreground -i command
seems to be non-functional here).

b) If I repeat the -X server command, and on the client use
> /opt/subversion/bin/svn co --username plibrm --password asdf
svn://cw3d/svn/prod .
(removing the cw3 repository name), then I get back:
svn: Can't connect to host 'cw3d': A remote host refused an attempted
connect operation.
Why is this connection refused, when the first one isn't, and
authorization (giving global read access) hasn't changed?

c) Somewhere along the way, one of the commands I issued that seemed to
NOT work somehow created a valid .svn directory in the checkout
destination. In one of my tests I received:
svn: '.' is already a working copy for a different URL; run 'svn update'
to complete it
I have no idea which of my tests that failed generated the .svn
directory. However, I was then able to start svnserve -X and issue
> /opt/subversion/bin/svn update --username plibrm --password asdf
and my desired checkout began to pull files from the repository.

Hi Bob,

The repository name looks incorrect, and group references are prefixed
with @, so instead of:

IT = r
plib = rw
IT = rw
plib = r


@IT = r
@plib = rw
@IT = rw
@plib = r

I'd also recommend setting a default so that all repositories are denied
access to un-authenticated users:

* =
