Cannot connect to CodePlex SCC using SVN

Oct 4, 2009 at 11:28 PM

I am currently set up on using a SVN connection, and recently started seeing the following error message: svn: OPTIONS request failed on '/svn/main'. I understand many other projects hosted on CodePlex are experiencing the same problem. Changing the connection type to TFS on the TeamCity server also brought up another error. Is this issue being looked into?

I noticed that I can connect to a different project, for instance However, when I try to get TeamCity to point to, it says the connection was refused. The people at tell me other projects hosted at CodePlex are experiencing the same issue. Does this shed some light into the issue?

I'm getting a similar error.

OPTIONS of '': could not connect to

I've double checked it's not just with this project, it seems to be all of my projects.
