Unhappy Windows 7, Red Hat Linux, Subversion, and TortoiseSVN

here is my question. We have Subversion server on Linux RedHat, subversion clients are on Windows 7. We use tortoiseSVN on Windows, I have two questions
1) can we use tortoisesvn on Windows to connect to subversion server on Linux? we try to commit our individual repositories to the subversion server on Linux.
2)If not, do I need to use either samba or tightvnc?

If your answer for number 1 is yes, would you please show me the way? I highly appreciate your help.

It is absolutely possible use TortoiseSVN to connect to SVN on Linux. The thing you may need to watch out for is some firewalls block DAV requests, so if you have problems with Tortoise like "error retrieving REPORT" you may need to use HTTPS instead.

Hi Andrew - Can you post how you got it to work? - I am a new to SVN and that is the exact same setup I need to implement. Did you get it working with HTTP or HTTPS?
