I've installed svnserve in linux box konrad. On konrad I can checkout from svn:

steve@konrad:~$ svn co svn://konrad
A    konrad/build.xml

On my local Windows pc i can ping konrad, but checkout doesn work:

C:\Projects>svn co svn://konrad
svn: E730061: Unable to connect to a repository at URL 'svn://konrad'
svn: E730061: Can't connect to host 'konrad': Подключение не установлено, т.к. конечный компьютер отверг запрос на подключение.

My linux firewall is disabled:

konrad# iptables -L
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

and windows firewall is also off (I can't send screen shot here, so believe me). How can I fix that? Any ideas?
