I've built my own SVN repository which works fine in my network. Here's the problem, I want to access it via internet so I did port forwarding to allow access for the SVN tool and apache (it allows web access), but I stil can't do that.

Does anyone know what might be the problem? Also maybe I haven't explained myself correctly, so if anyone has any doubts about my problem, please don't hesitate to ask me.

Do you have firewall with your router or server that would block access? –  neo Jan 16 '13 at 17:38
Post more information, be precise and complete. What port forwarding ? What's the error (try with curl on the URL) ? do packets come up to your svn server ? (use tcpdump) –  zecrazytux Jan 16 '13 at 19:06
Does it work on local network? Are you able to hit your Apache server from outside? You need to provide more information then this, but for starters I'd look in logs and see what they're saying.. post your configurations and logs so we can see it as well. –  alexus Jan 16 '13 at 19:44
"allow access for the SVN tool and apache" - WTF??? Do you use http:// or svn:// repo? Can you telnet to service port? More details! –  Lazy Badger Jan 16 '13 at 20:47
Sorry for taking such a long time to answer ... I've been away from home for a while and it'll probably take me at least a few more days away, so I won't be able to give you information about logs and etc. For the lack of information I'm sorry, I didn't know exactly what to write and my english skills wouldn't cooperate. –  morcillo Jan 16 '13 at 23:15
