SubGit, like any other Subversion client, can access a Subversion repository by using one of the following protocols.
Table: Subversion repository access protocols
|Direct repository access.|
|Access via custom protocol to the SVN server.|
|Same as |
|Access through a web server (usually Apache) |
with possible SSL encryption.
The access via
file:// can be used when both Subversion and Git repositories are hosted on the same machine. In this case, the local operating system account is used for authentication, and no additional settings are required.
All the other access methods to a Subversion repository require the appropriate authentication settings for SubGit.
