If I'm not mistaken, the OPTIONS request is the very first request
when svn tries to do something. The fact that it fails due to "could
not connect to server" indicates, I think, that there is a network
connectivity problem. Or maybe you're just using the wrong url.

Can you try to browse to that url with a web browser? It should
display the contents of the repository in that directory. (also, if
everything appears fine, and you can connect from a browser, there is
still the possibility of proxy settings messing things up (may be
different between your browser and your svn client)).
