I'm SSHing to my server from my desktop as I haven't actually got a

output regarding svn:

When I try and do "telnet 3690" on the server I get...

telnet: connect to address Connection refused.

...and if I try and do "telnet 3690" from my desktop I get...

I'm not opposed to using SVN via SSH but I'd kind like to get a
vanilla SVN server going first. It's becoming an unusually steep
learning curve =o)

I wonder if you have inetd running and intercepting these
connections--not likely, but you can check.

Have you gone through the /path-to-repository/conf/svnserve.conf
file and twiddled with any of the settings in there?

Check man svnserve.conf and man svnserve (there's a debug setting
for the server that might provide some clues as to why connections
are failing).  Particularly, in svnserve.conf(5) is:

  "anon-access = none|read|write
      Determines the access  level  for  unauthenticated  users.   write
      access  allows  all repository operations.  read access allows all
      operations except committing  and  changing  revision  properties.
      none access allows no access.  The default level is read.

   auth-access = none|read|write ..."
