Paul, anyone else able to validate Graeme's questions?

From: Graeme Gillies ...


I had a close look at the setup on anonsvn.jboss.org for both HTTP and
HTTPS and I can not see any differences.

I did some tests using the command the user specified which was

svn co
-r HEAD --depth=infinity --force

>From systems both inside and external to the Red hat network, and it
seemed to work fine.

What does pike my interest is that he mentioned it worked ok for HTTPS
but HTTP is giving him grief. This leads me to believe that the problem
may actually be a web proxy between the user and their internet
connection. Typically web proxies will connect HTTPS traffic straight
through (for obvious reasons) but sometimes they can have problems with
SVN if they are configured to not allow some HTTP request methods.

Can we please get the user to confirm that they have no proxy server
(squid, Microsoft ISA, etc.) between themselves and their internet at
large, and possibly even try to perform the operation from a place they
are sure they have a direct internet connection (like home) and see how
they go.

Let us know what they come back with.
