Subject RE: Authentication Issue

Thanks Johan.  The solution ended up being to reset the password in the domain.  The odd thing
is the user account was fine, not locked and the password was not expired.  It had been approximately
90 days since we set the password, so I assume something is going on with the domain settings
or user account.

The first obvious thing to check is: is it the same version of svn client software? 'svn --version'
should tell you.

The second thing: what about the network route? Any proxies, firewalls, ... differences between
both network paths?
