We use SVN Server from CollabNet and we have a new fellow working with us and I had to create a user/pwd to him...

no problem here.

Question is, How can I make sure that this new user had only access to one branch and not the full SVN structure, not even read permissions, just Read/Write on that branch?

Thank you.

We used to use VisualSVN Server but the GUI does not allow me to set users only to access a folder (branch) :(

If you used Apache HTTP and SVN (either http or https access), you could do this with authz.
