Subversion - svn:// protocol : connection closed unexpectedly problem

Hi,

I got Subversion installed on couple of Unix boxes. When I try subversion using svn:// on the first unix box it works great and shows all directories and files that are under version control

svn ls svn://server1/Repo1

But when I give the same command on the other box which has the same version of Subversion installed I got the following error.

svn ls svn://server2/Repo2

svn: Connection closed unexpectedly

I checked to make sure all the properties/profiles are same on both the unix boxes.

I googled a lot to find out if I can get some solution, but no luck.

Please let me know what is going on here.

Thanks!

/etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts deny must be examined.
Can you connect with command line svn from good server to problem server.

Hello Gheist,

I tried to connect using command line svn from good server to the problem server and still see the message

"connection closed unexpectedly"

Any other thoughts or ideas ? I am really struck with this problem.

Thanks

It looks like tcp wrappers configured in /etc/hosts.allow|hosts.deny

I hope no firewall or selinux involved.

Hello Gheist,

It was the problem with inetd.conf entries. Subversion using SVN protocol does not like to have an entry inside inetd.conf file. Once I removed the same, it fixed the problem.

Thanks for your suggestions gheist.
