Neither, probably. Subversion uses multiple ssh connections. I doubt this will change. But I'm just a user, not a developer.

You should probably file a bug report with whoever configured your firewall to work that way, because it is not compatible with how Subversion uses ssh.

You could also consider using http or https instead of ssh.
