How to configure a HTTP proxy for svn

Have you seen the FAQ entry What if I’m behind a proxy??

… edit your “servers” configuration file to indicate which proxy to use. The files location depends on your operating system. On Linux or Unix it is located in the directory “~/.subversion”. On Windows it is in “%APPDATA%\Subversion”. (Try “echo %APPDATA%”, note this is a hidden directory.)

For me this involved uncommenting and setting the following lines:


On command line : nano ~/.subversion/servers
