Subversion and the proxy

If you are going to use Subversion inside the “Great Firewall of University of Reading” (GeaFUoR) then you need to do the following:

Go to the “servers” file of subversion which is located in

your_machines_Documents_and_Settings_folderyour_usernameApplication DataSubversion

find the proxy settings and change them to something like (remember to remove the ‘#’ infront of them):

# http-proxy-exceptions = *,
http-proxy-host =
http-proxy-port = 8080
http-proxy-username = uniUserName
http-proxy-password = yourPassword
# http-compression = no
# No http-timeout, so just use the builtin default.
# No neon-debug-mask, so neon debugging is disabled.
# ssl-authority-files = /path/to/CAcert.pem;/path/to/

And subversion will work. Unfortunately if you are using several computers, you’ll have to do this on all of them! I’ve now had to do this twice, and was incouraged to do write it down. This is now done… (A bit overdue, I know P@!!)

I've just found that talks about php problems with external access through an ISA proxy.

So our suspision where probably correct – it must be a Uni proxy problem!
