If our box is behind a proxy and we want to use subversion to communicate with a repo
which is out of our network, we need to configure proxy settings for Subversion.
In my case, my laptop is behind our company’s proxy.
Open the ~/.subversion/servers file, edit the “global” section as follows,
http-proxy-host = proxy-hostname
http-proxy-port = proxy-port
http-proxy-host = pac.proxy.company-name.com
http-proxy-port = 8000
