I have set up an SVN server on Windows 2008 R2 Server. I can browse the SVN Repositroy from my local machine, but my colleague can't from his machine ("can't connect to server" message).

However, both local machines are able to Telnet & http browse the remote server, and both firewalls are deactivated.

Are you serving your repositories through svn:// or http://? If the latter, are you using Apache? Maybe IIS? – Oliver Salzburg Jul 15 '12 at 14:12

Check the communication the other way around - try telnet from the SVN to the local machines.

I just noticed that the other machine is connected to internet via an entreprise router so it does not have a public IP. So I think I can't just telnet it that way I guess. – Mika Jacobi Jul 15 '12 at 14:12

It turned out that the problematic workstation was behind a host building firewall and the port were blocked at that level. Sigh...
