Anyone here set up Subversion on Windows?
show user profile  Poopsmith
I've been trying religiously with my two fellow developers to get one set up on a w7 32 bit laptop, that we can access from anywhere, and we keep running into problems. We just finished following a pretty good tutorial, but at the end we get a 403 forbidden access error when trying to access it.

I'm running svn, but only single user (non-networked) and I set it up so long ago, I've forgotton what you have to do ! Take a look at mecurial instead. Think it's better.

We use tortoise svn here at work. I find it really easy to use, would def recomend it. We run it throughout office on 64 and 32 machines on vista and 7

The tortoise (explorer interface) extension is also available for mecurial, so it should feel almost the same for day-day use.

I also use tortoise SVN client side- it's simple, works quickly, doesn't annoy me. recommend.

Well we've got it set up on a laptop now, using apache, but it's only accessible from within the network. Basically if me and him type in the exact same command "svn ls http://externalip:80/project1" It works for him and not me (it's set up at his house). We also tried port 8080 and used port triggering to set it to port 80. I'm terrible with servers and networking, any suggestions on how to debug/test/fix this?

Hi, Poopsmith:

It sounds like your issue may be networking related and not related to Subversion.

Most ISPs block incoming port 80 and 8080 (as well as 25, 21, etc) unless you pay for higher service and then explicitly open it up.

I am guessing any service you run on port 80 will be unreachable from the outside even though it works fine from the inside. Makes sense if your friend can hit the server from inside his network, but no matter what you try you can not get to it from outside.

Try putting it on a nonstandard port 8001 or anything uncommon.

Then have your router forward the port 8001 to the SVN server with NAT

If you can hit it fine inside the network on port 80, but not coming from outside, then I would suspect it is the port 80 issue with ISPs.

A simple way to verify is to run anything on port 80 and try and get to it from outside. The quickest way is a standalone ftp and try running it on port 80 and getting to it from outside. Or a simple web server will do as well.

Also, in response to your port triggering scenario, it is very tedious and requires proxies/reverse proxies to route traffic between ports (having it come into the router on port 8001 and then route it interally on 80 and then reverse, so I would just recommend the nonstandard port approach and stick with that.

Thank you so much tayok, that worked flawlessly. God I love maxforums, I can get a good solution to a completely unrelated problem faster than posting on 3 other forums.
