If everyone can check out certain folders but not others (i.e., the
'anonymous' user has read access), then Subversion does not ask for
authentication, since the server doesn't need it.

You have to either prevent read access for *all* folders for the
anonymous user, or give the anonymous user read access to all folders.

Or you can check out a folder the anonymous user doesn't have read
access to - then the server will ask for authentication.

basic checkout with authentication credentials

Message Hey all, please forgive my basic question but I searched the group and
didn't have much luck.

I can check out code successfully to my local sandbox without issue,
but I'm only seeing the directories available to anonymous users.
According to the server admin, based on my permissions, I should be
able to see more directories, but when I checkout, I don't see
anywhere to plug in my username/password so that I can authenticate
myself.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thank you,
Brian
