SVN URL Format


I have TurtoiseSVN and ankhSVN installed. I created a repository on my computer.. "C:\Documents and Settings\user1\My Documents\Subversion\Repository\"

I am trying to connect to this repository from my co-workers computer. What should this URL be?

Any help would be great. Thanks.

You will need to run the svnserve daemon on your computer, or run an apache server with the necessary modules, to allow your colleague to access this locally stored repository. For a simple case like this I would recommend svnserve, it should be simpler to configure and run.

The url would then be:


As opposed to an http or file protocol URL for apache and local filesystem based repositories.
