  Setting up a Secure Subversion Server
Subject:   CRAM-MD5

I need to put my subversion repository on a FreeBSD server, but a Windows XP client needs to access it (over the internet).


If CRAM-MD5 is not on FreeBSD, how can I do this securely? I can not use SSH, because I'm running the client in Windows. Don't suggest cygwin, I can't have that installed (long story).


So, how do I get the CRAM-MD5 stuff to work on FreeBSD? Or is there another way to set up the subversion server?

    Not that it's difficult to use SSH with windows (google for "putty"), but for using Subversion in Windows try TortoiseSVN: http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/

    Well, if you really can't use putty or a similar ssh client on the Windows system (http://www.openssh.org/windows.html), I'd suggest using Apache with either basic auth or https and having the Windows client access the repository using its browser. It's more setup work on the FreeBSD system but requires no configuration or additional software on the XP system.
