    computer with Apache 2.0.49 and OpenSSL_0.9.7d. Now I've got both
    systems running, one using port 22 for SSH and the other using port 443
    for SSL forwarded by the firewall. Both systems works fine for checking
    in and out small textfiles, no problems whatsoever. But when trying to
    commit or check out larger files (> 100 kb binary files in my case) the
    communication is interrupted on both systems.

    Might be a MTU/fragmentation problem. See:

         Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
    usually comes from bad judgement.
