  • I have a subversion server implemented as an Apache 2.0 server under Linux (RedHat).
  • I have to access this server from Windows XP via a proxy.

If I try to connect with a browser under HTTPS I will be asked for account/password and every thing works fine.

If I try to access it with tortoise, I will be asked for account and password too, but then the connection failed.

If I disable authorization the connection works. If I am not using a proxy everything works fine.

Can some gave me a hint?

It seems there is an issue with TortoiseSVN accessing your repository. Try to configure proxy for TortoiseSVN, if you haven't already.
