SVN checkout on Ubuntu VM pointing SVN server running on Windows XP gives only timeout
Posted on 2008-10-30
I have working SVN server with several repositories running on my XP desktop.
I have several VMs (VMware server) running on my windows XP desktop.
I can checkout any SVN repository within any of my Windows based VMs; so far all good.
Now I recently created my first Linux based VM (Ubuntu).
Doing a checkout on the Ubuntu VM as per below command just times out.
svn checkout --username xxx --password xxx file::///windowsdesktop-IP/LocalRepos
The above nicely works from any Windows based VM using tortoisesvn
I installed rapidsvn and tried the GUI way to checkout, but same timeout.
Via Places I can browse in Ubuntu VM to that shared folder LocalRepos on my Windows XP desktop.
Any ideas? I am new to Linux.
