Unable to connect to SVN repository

I am a brand new SVN user - day 3.


Following the documentation, I installed and configured a repository and
imported some test data into it. I can access the repository on the SVN
host using the "file:/// <file:///\\> " convention but access the
repository using the TortoiseSVN client (1.7.9) from a client PC.


The error message is: URL 'svn://X.XX.XXX.XXX/Sandbox_SVN_Repo' doesn't


From the client PC, I can


- Ping the SVN host where the repository is located

- Telnet to port 3690 OK

- On the SVN host, the repository was created using the
TortoiseSVN 1.7.9 (64 Bit client)

- - On the client PC, I am using TortoiseSVN 1.7.9 (32 Bit

- SVN: 1.7.6 / TortoiseSVN: 1.7.9


I am using the vanilla SVN connection - so there's no authentication
required. I've also restarted the "svnserver service on SVN repo host"
as well as rebooted the server.


Can anyone please advise as to what might be going on?


Thank you.
