I am new to linux so please be explicit...
I have been trying to setup an svn server for the past week on the NSA210.
Here is what I have accomplished so far...

1. Installed FFP 0.7 using these steps:

2. Installed packages using "slacker -Ui":

3. Made in "/ffp/start/" like this:



4. Followed "Create Repository" and "Authorization" and "Star Server" form here:

1) Create Repository
svnadmin create svn/

2) Authorization

Edit svnserve.conf
vi svnserve.conf

anon-access = read
auth-access = write

password-db = passwd
# authz-db = authz
realm = My First Repository

Save the file and exit

Edit the passwd-file
vi passwd

foo = bar

Save the file and exit

3) Star Server

svnserve -d --listen-port <port> --listen-host <ip or domain> -r /mnt/HD_a2/Data/svn/

................GOT THROUGH ALL THE PROBLEMS UP TO HERE............

5. Used TortoiseSVN to connect to the server:


Error: "Unable to connect to a repository"
No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

Please help I would hate to abandon this now that I have gone so far with this...


I was able to connect to the server but now I am getting errors from the svnserve.conf file: specifically from each of the uncommented lines in the 4. 2) Authorization step.

If i leave those lines commented I am able connect without any errors but
1) I don't see any of the files in the svn folder and
2) If I try to create a folder with TortoiseSVN I get an error:
Subversion reported an error: Authorization failed.

I aslo cannot connect to the server from outside my wireless network?!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
