  • Cannot checkout SVN server using DNS, only IP

    Hello all,

    I've been trying to set up a SVN home server on my Windows XP machine to allow remote access from the internet. Currently, I'm using Visual SVN Server and I'm using port 8080 (which was forwarded in my router).

    I've also installed TortoiseSVN , and set up a NO-IP account so that my dynamic IP is update and can be accessed via

    If I type on my web browser, my repository files are shown correctly.

    What could possibly be wrong ?

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
