Using Subversion 1.2.0 on Windows XP, I can't checkout the django source code. TortoiseSVN 1.2.0 gave the same result.

c:\src\django>svn co
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/django/trunk'
svn: PROPFIND of '/svn/django/trunk': Could not read status line: An existing co
nnection was forcibly closed by the remote host.   (

I suspect it's a firewall issue on your end.

Sounds like firewall indeed

Check that the firewall rules are allowing PROPFIND on port 80

ours wasn't

I don't think that this reason is sufficient. At work I can checkout some repositories with tortoisesvn and some don't work. So it seems improbable that this is a firewall issue only.

I Forgot to mention that http[s] is one oif the repositories which don't work for me in this environment.

Fresh checkout of trunk just worked for me. Note, it doesn't seem the django repository is set up to handle https:// so you can't use that trick to get around firewall restrictions.
