Currently I am using VisualSVN Server and it's only accessible on my home network. Eventually there will be others accessing it, but for now it's just me and I would like to be able to go down to the coffee shop (or wherever) and be able to work away from the house.
Currently I'm accessing the server at
http://user-pc:xx/svn/Projects/. When I setup my router to forward port XX to my server, what steps should I take to secure the server?
Keep in mind that I am doing this on Windows and while I use the regular command prompt extensively, I haven't been on SVN very long and haven't used anything other than TortoiseSVN to work with it up to this point.
Edit: The only harmful thing an attacker could do, that I'm aware of, is to: guess my port number, username, and password to get into the repository. However as the saying goes, I don't know what I don't know.
So I'm not necessarily asking for step by step instructions (although I would certainly like to have that too) as much as what things I need to keep in consideration for any kind of attack that could be made once the port is open.
