Subversion Proxy settings

Hi all ,

This post is for my friends who are stuck behind proxy that needs authentication and wants to use subversion for fetching latest source codes , and use other tools dependent on subversion like msfupdate(Metasploit update).

Do to the proxy settings go to /etc/subversion and edit servers file .

You need to edit global section of this file . A snippet is given below.

# http-proxy-exceptions = *,
http-proxy-host = Myhost
http-proxy-port = Myport
http-proxy-username = Myusername
http-proxy-password = Mypassword
# http-compression = no
# http-auth-types = basic;digest;negotiate
# No http-timeout, so just use the builtin default.
# No neon-debug-mask, so neon debugging is disabled.

 One can also add exceptions . The group settings can also be used to specify the proxy server , but these will be particular to a group.

I needed sometime to figure it out as the Svn site don't explain this clearly.

Thanx for reading:)
