Hi, I'm attempting to do a the same thing for the same reason and having problems. I'm using version 1.35 on Windows 7 (x64) with Mercurial. I've : ticked "Allow Anonymous Access" created a "test" repository. given the anonymous user "All Repository (write)" given the anonymous user explicit write access to the "test" repository. When I try to push, on the client I get :
"http authorization required realm: SONIA :: SCM Manager"
And on the server I get : PermissionFilter-writeaccess to repositorytest for user anonymousdenied.
Discussion in google groups suggests that this has been an issue since version 1.21 when things were changed to apache shiro.
