Contacting repository when add a repository

I want to add mirror repository.

But I have some constraints for security policy.

I have made mirror repository using svn sync command and mounted other server because fisheye installed server can't be connected to svn server directly.

SVN server <--> internal server (which has mirror repo) <--> Fisheye Server (which has mounted mirror repo)

And just have read permission for mirror repo on the side of Fisheye Server.

I think it will have no problems with read-only permission but "Contacting repository" message is showing continuously when I add mirror repo in Fisheye.

The result of "Test Connection" in Fisheye is same.

Is Fisheye needed write or other permissions for adding repository?

Or something strange is in my environment?

Hello Sunchan.

You are correct regarding to the read-only permission, FishEye only needs read permission to work properly, we also recommend our users to use that way.

Since the repository is local we recommend using the file:// protocol which is faster then the others and more reliable.

Could you please try setting your repository URL using the file:// and let me know if that changes anything?
