Re: [Subclipse-users] Subclipse with SSH Tunnel

Thanks for the quick reply!
Ok I switched to use JavaHL and eclipse tells me the following error:
"Network connection closed unexpectedly
svn: Connection closed unexpectedly"
I do not get a prompt for username/password when I accessing the repository.
It pops up a window that says "File '' does not exist remotely." and the
console says the above error.

Is there some configuration window for subclipse if I use JavaHL? I'm also
working on Mac OS, so maybe that could be an issue. Do I need any special
libraries for JavaHL in that OS?
