> Dear Subversion experts, I have really a proxy/firewall problem using svn to download a package I use it for research. I am listing here the error message after using svn to download the software from the site here below:
I'm afraid I don't know the answer to your question, I just want to point out that 3690 is the default port for svnserve, so that's applicable when a repository is served using the svn:// protocol, which this repository is not: it's served with the https:// protocol, which means it by default uses port 443. You cannot simply pick a different port number to communicate with a server with, unless that server is configured to respond with the correct protocol on that port; this server does not appear to be configured to respond at all on port 3690, which is not a surprise.
When I try "svn ls https://ekpbelle2.physik.uni-karlsruhe.de/trunk/tools" I first get asked if I want to accept the SSL certificate, and when I accept it temporarily, I'm then prompted for my username and password; when I fail that because I don't have one, I get "svn: OPTIONS of 'https://ekpbelle2.physik.uni-karlsruhe.de/trunk/tools': authorization failed: Could not authenticate to server: rejected Basic challenge (https://ekpbelle2.physik.uni-karlsruhe.de)". You are presumably entering a valid username and password before receiving the error you mentioned above? Or does it show that before even asking you for a username and password?
