Yes, I can do it with the native windows client without any problem.

Okay, I will do it tomorrow when I in the office computer. I've already
knew that where is the configuration files for cygwin svn. but could you
tell me where is the configuration files for my native windows svn? My
windows svn is the CollabNet from tigris.org.

Actually, I am sure what is the user name and password. I remembered I've
tried by using my windows's domain account. But it did not work. You know,
for our repository accessing, there is no user name password required, i
guess it is using the OS's user name to do the authontication. If my
windows account is domain\tom, and password is 'hello', so can you give me
a suggest on how should I provide this to the svn client?
