I'm trying to install SvnBridge on my TFS Server running Windows Server 2008 R2, TFS, and now SvnBridge in an IIS7 website.

When I attempted to visit the project repository for example @ http://<>:8081/repository_name

I am prompted for an authentication. I cannot figure out how to add a user for this authentication? None of my logins or IIS-User logins work? Can anyone point me to the correct location of a guide to adding users for Digest Authentication.

I am having this exact same issue. Did you ever figure it out? I have played with enabling/disabling every possible authentication type for the SVNbridge site in IIS, all with no luck. – user79685 Apr 27 '11 at 17:27
No not yet, I went on the 'Codeplex' for the project - someone suggested that I default to 'Basic Authentication' but I can't figure out how to use add a USER for Basic Authentication via IIS -- I don't feel very smart! I can connect but I can't authenticate so it's pretty much useless at this point! – jordan.baucke May 3 '11 at 7:52
