Wait.. Are you running the svn server as a daemon, or are you just
using subversion over ssh? I don't believe the two are mutually
inclusive. Although I have not done it that way, you are supposed to be
able to use ssh as your transport inside ssh and not have the daemon
running (hence no open port 3690). The regular svnserve daemon uses
that port though for regular tcp.
In the Beginning there was nothing, which exploded - Yeah right...
