Thanks Ben. I noticed your post on the matter.

Understood. In our case, SVN is the entire reason we have Apache running at all. Our IT Department really favours the MS "solution".

I suspected as much. Oh well.

I've downloaded those, too, but the installation hasn't "taken" yet. I'll have to edit the httpd.conf a bit more carefully to make things work with it. (At present, I'm getting an error 1, which I'm sure is due to a misconfiguration. I'll RTFM before posting any more about that. Quite likely, I should have tried the vanilla install first, then modified to suit.)

I've downloaded the WanDisco version and I'll try the installation on Monday. (It's past home time on a Friday here in South-Eastern Australia.) If the WanDisco binary works better for me, I will probably not do any more work on the Collabnet update. Either way, I'll let you know.
