Some environments may require authenticating with an outbound proxy before being able to connect to the machine hosting the subversion repository.


SVNKit doesn't use the JVM proxy settings, but simply delegates to the configuration used by the native subversion client.


Add the follow to ~/.subversion/servers (for Unix/Linux) or %APPDATA%\Subversion\servers for Windows based machines:

http-proxy-host =
http-proxy-port = 8080
http-proxy-username = myuserid
http-proxy-password = mypassword

Save the file then test the connection using the jsvn executable that ships with Fisheye:

<FishEye installation directory>/lib/svn/jsvn info

If that is successful, Fisheye should now be able to connect to the subversion repository.
