The sysadmin in my company just resigned (me, intern has to fill that role) & I'm tasked to connect the external bugtracker (Redmine) with the company's Subversion server that is located inside the internal network.

The network looks like this:

[Dedicated server] 202.x.x.x --------- 202.x.x.x [IPCop] -------[SVN server]

And this is how the Redmine subversion connector settings looks like: image

What should I do to connect them? Just tell me what can be done so I could google for the tutorials & documentations.

You should be able to map a port between the external IP of IPCop to the Internal SVN server. The Redmine configuration would then identify the external IPCop address.

Thank you for the suggestion. Is the connection will be encrypted? I just discovered VPN technology by googling here & there, spent several hours ago reading OpenVPN explanation on encrypted connection between host-to-host. I think I'll try your suggestion first before starting to look into using vpn since I'm on a deadline. – Oct 20 '10 at 12:02
