Re: Update Error over VPN

I was going to chime in earlier, but something in Brane’s response finally put me over the edge. We are having a very similar error when updating over VPN (the problem does not occur when in the office):

Summary of conflicts:
  Text conflicts: 1
svn: E175002: REPORT request on '/hepd/Shelby/!svn/me’ failed

The issue occurs while trying to do a merge, and it happens at the point in time when a few large binaries (which take noticeably longer when doing an “svn up” because of their size) are processed. The reason I am replying is that we do have a load balancer in front of our pair of Subversion servers. I hope this helps to shed some light on this issue.
