Just now i found out the way to access svn servers through a proxy. i was having problems with my institute proxy server refusing connections via svn.
Here’s my solution:
now you should be presented with a file explaining all the things.
Go to the end of the file. you’ll see a tag [global]
http-proxy-exceptions = *.exception.com, http://www.internal-site.org
http-proxy-host = your.proxy.server.address
http-proxy-port = 8080 (or the port of http proxy if it’s something other than 8080)
http-compression = no
keep in mind the NO-indentation. don’t give any extra space beteen or at the front of the line. a # means a comment.
now use svn through your proxy.. no stopping.. !
