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

Hi Dan, all,

thanx for your help so far. I added the -2, so it now is

plink -2 -l username etc.

Unfortunately, it still does not workd. I can see a putty / windows cmd
window popping up (as it was before, with username/password), but then
nothink happens.

It is interesting: If I try plink on the cmd line, (I have to add the
server address after the command then, but that's clear), it works. So
somehow I think subclipse adds the information about the svn repository
path maybe at the wrong place or...?

Do you use sublcipse with plink and the svn+ssh:// protocoll? Are there
any other options for plinks?

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.
