Eclipse SVN error “svn:E210003:connection refused by the server”


I am using eclipse Juno Service Release 2, and I am trying to connect to a SVN server via SVN Repository Exploring perspective but I get an "svn:E210003:connection refused by the server" error.
I tried the suggested solutions to modify Active Provider to "Manual" and "Native" also in Network Connections from Window->Preferences but I still face this issue. Please take note that I am not able to access command prompt due to insufficient privileges and also the credentials work for one of my colleague, so I just think it might be a proxy issue.

Could you please suggest how can I solve this issue or what to investigate further more?

Best Solution

You likely have to be given permission to connect to the svn server by whoever is acting as its administrator.
