I am able to Checkout a repository directory through my VPN with no issues. When I try to Commit any changes I made to the files, I get an "access denied" error. What is the trick to having Tortoise SVN work with a VPN where I can Checkout, Update as well as Commit files?

If you are able to checkout the VPN should be working fine. There are a lot of details missing, for example the protocol, and in case of http/https if you have a proxy server between your computer and the SVN server. But it seems unlikely that you would get an Access denied error from network issues.

I would look at would be the server configuration. Are you able to checkout/commit if you are NOT using the vpn (ie, locally on the SVN server or from a computer nearby the server)? Do you have authorization rules in the repository that disable write access for your user?

Kind regards,
Daniel

Thank you Daniel,

When I am onsite, I have no issues with Tortois SVN at all. It is only when I am working from home using a VPN to access the network share where the repository is when I can only checkout, update but not commit. I have anonymous=none and authorized='write' in the svnserve.conf and I am using a password file for user logins. There must be some kind of proxy setting or a hook I am overlooking. I also notice it not asking me for user or password from home, which is strange.

what protocol you are using? e.g. what is your URL?
if you use http, https there may be proxy involved. try command line tools you may get more information.
