Re: Can access with web browser, can't with 'svn co http://url"

Hi.

For me works ok until two weeks ago. I noticed for first time that I
can't access from a machine inside a firewall (I have
'~/.subversion/servers' configured correctly).

But few days ago I noticed that I can't access from another machine
(without firewalls in the middle) neither the same machine.

I have svn 1.5 debian package. I'm not sure if an 'safe-upgrade' can
change something, maybe the glibc.... I don't know.

Well, I just call to CSI...

Thanks.

Javier
