Subject Re: Download source behind firewall

I just double checked on a clean machine and https works without an 
Apache login.  I believe the problem is you did not install svn+ssl.

If you don't have permission to upgrade the svn client on your 
computer, you can try which is a pure java 
subversion client that supports http, https, svn and svn+ssh connection
