Cannot connect to SVN server


I setup subversion on my Linux box ( Distro : LFS/BLFS ). This linux box and a Windows XP machine are connected to a router.

I have installed apr , apr-utils , SQLite and then subversion with no errors.

Also started the svnserve using :

svnserve -d
My ifconfig looks like :

/home/nvleague : # ifconfig
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:13:D3:98:50:A9
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          RX packets:2511 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:1381 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:225213 (219.9 Kb)  TX bytes:191991 (187.4 Kb)
          Interrupt:17 Base address:0x6000

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:  Mask:
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

Also created an SVN repository using svnadmin

When I connect to the svn repo from my Windows XP machine using TortoiseSVN I get the following error :
OPTIONS of '' Could not read status line
connection was closed by server(
Can anyone help me with this issue ?

Here is my output from netstat -na which shows that svn serve is listening on port 3690

/home/nvleague : # netstat -na
Active Internet connections (servers and established)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address           Foreign Address         State

Do let me know if you need any further information.

Additional Information

When I type the url in my browser , I get :
( success ( 2 2 ( ) ( edit-pipeline svndiff1 absent-entries 
commit-revprops depth log-revprops partial-replay ) ) )
What does this mean ?
This message is different from the one I get in TortoiseSVN client as indicated in my original post.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
