Subject RE: SVN access became slow
Date Wed, 06 Jun 2018 08:08:58 GMT
I do "Telnet \\server 3690", and I get: 
Connecting To \\server...Could not open connection to the host, on port
3690: Connect failed
I haven't used Telnet before, so maybe I'm doing something wrong?

Running TCPView tool(from SysInternals) shows svnserve.exe with protocol
'TCP' on port 3690, while other ports (other services) do show 'TCPV6'.

I installed SVN 1.10.0 client on the other client PC, and this also gets
slow. Reverting to 1.9.7 solves this again (because it goes straight to
I'm puzzled... Why is 1.10.0 showing this behavior?
Also: Why does SVNServe not provide an IPv6 service on our server PC?

I think for now I will revert back to 1.9.7 on my main PC as well, until I
have a better view of what's going on.

Why does this not work? This should work. Can you connect to the SVN service
with telnet to the server's advertised IPv6 address on port 3690? Maybe
svnserve is not listening on the correct
IOPv6 address (see the --listen-host option)?

I don't think there is a bug here. SVN will simply try addresses returned by
your client system's DNS resolver in turn. Maybe you could configure your
client system's DNS resolver to prefer IPv4 but that would not be a nice

If your SVN server has an IPv6 address but does not provide service on that
address, this is expected behaviour. There is no way for the SVN client to
know that it should not be trying this address.

If you do not intend to provide SVN service over IPv6, you could also
disable IPv6 entirely on the SVN server machine.
