Re: Using Subclipse with svn+ssh:// on Windows (with plink)

Hi Sven.

Two things:

Firstly, plink uses ssh protocol 1 (the deprecated, buggy one) by
default, so your command should be "plink -2 ..." to force protocol 2
(and enable your ssh2 key). Secondly, you should take a look at pageant,
which is the putty ssh key agent. You run it at startup, type in your
passphrase and then whenever a plink or putty session requires the key,
it talks directly to pageant. (It also gives you a taskbar icon for
launching putty sessions.) This is a huge time saver - it means you can
protect your private key file and not have to type in your password all
the time.
