Tring to clone this: http://sourceforge.net/p/objectlistview/code/HEAD/tree/

I am using CNTLM behind and NTLM proxy. I haven't tested it at home without a productivity firewall in my way

TortoiseGit clones it ok.

    Yeah, you're right. I tried the svn:// syntax as well with no success at work - it must have been a proxy bullshitcorporategateway thing.

    I had no trouble with svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/objectlistview/code/cs/trunk when at home, away from the Productivity Firewall.

    It balked when I ticked the "Clone to Revision" box & specified Revision 10 so I unticked the box. Crisis over.

    Thanks for following up.

    cheers Ewen

    It must be user error. ie. Working in a place that doesn't understand the 21st Century nor trusts its users to connect to the Internet in a manner that actually works.

    Hiya. No, I don't have write access to that repo, it's a public read-only link to a SourceForge repo.

    Thanks for the read-write link - I tried it behind the Productivity Firewall [TM] and of course it failed, through no fault of yours or mine.
