I am very pleased to report that the latest version of
Url Rewriter 3.0 works without a glitch as a proxy allowing remote access to Subversion via IIS6. I was looking for a solution to the problem of how to host a SVN repository on a Windows virtual server, where direct access to Apache is not allowed and after
trying svniis SvnProxy without much success and even attempting to develop our own reverse proxy in C# (easy for straight http, surprisingly complex for the SVN implementation of WebDav with the chunked problems and all the extra verbs) I have stumbled upon
the latest release of Managed Fusion Rewriter, and voila! it works without a glitch so far. Here are just a few observations from my tests:
- VisualSVN is very easy to setup under IIS6 (as localhost:81)
- it was necessary to update .NET to 3.5 SP1 (with bare .NET 2.0 some methods releted to the integrated pipes were missing)
- the usual setup for a wildcard filter must be done for a chosen subdomain.
- a single rule is all that is needed in ManagedFusion.Rewriter.txt:
RewriteRule ^/(.*) http://localhost:81/$1 [P]
Well done Nick and thank you for sharing your great software.
