The scheme in the URL here indicates what protocol to access the repository.

svn:// - requires an _svnserve_ daemon running on port 3690

svn+ssh:// - requires ssh access, and the path is usually relative to 
the root.  Usually runs over port 22

file:// - requires the repos to be locally available, or mounted via 
NFS, SMB, etc.

http:// - requires apache to be setup with the proper modules, etc. 
Runs over port 80 or 443 if SSL is used.
