Using subversion from behind a proxy (HTTPS)

Subversion can be used from behind a proxy quiet easily.

Go to either (Windows)

sideways online download %APPDATA%\Subversion

or (Linux)


watch nomad online and edit the servers file.

You need to have a entry like this in the file.

http-proxy-host =
http-proxy-port = 9999

Now you can connect out to external subversion servers.
You may need to read about (and set) the http-proxy-exceptions variable if you have internal and external servers.

There is also a

  • http-proxy-password
  • http-proxy-username

variable which may need to be set if your proxy requires authentication.
