I'm telnetting to a Windows box and attempting to use the Collabnet svn command line client to access a repository using a URL that starts with svn+ssh.
The telnet terminal just hangs presumably because TortoisePlink.exe is trying to display a password prompt for the key file in a popup dialog which of course isn't supported by the telnet client.
(I tried using the Putty plink.exe in the ssh setting in the hope that is would prompt for a password, but it just hangs.)
