Re: Any data compression between server and client?

     Thanks for your reply.

     My company has developers aboard accessing our SVN server through
VPN and they're always complaining that transmissions are very slow.
That's why I'm trying to find where the problem is.

     I was pretty sure there's compression and I'd like to dismiss
this as a possible cause. But when I want to confirm it on Tigris
foum, I got a rather unfriendly reply:

     Is there any difference between SVN and Subversion, btw?
