[TSVN] SVN+SSH+CYGWIN = no repository found

I'm trying to secure our development environment. We're now happily
using svn:// scheme and it works OK, but I want to step further and
set up SSH.

I have set up a cygwin ssh daemon in the server using these
instructions: http://pigtail.net/LRP/printsrv/cygwin-sshd.html and it
works OK. I can ssh using putty to the server, and everything is OK:
from there I can do "svn" and it works, also I can start "svnserve"
and so on.

Now, I try to browse the repository using RepoBrowser. I have set up
my SSH Client in TSVN properties as "C:\Program
Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\TortoisePlink.exe -l <myuser> -pw <mypassword>"
and then, I rewrite the URL that previously was
svn://server/projects/project1 as svn+ssh://server/projects/project1
and I get "Error * No repository found in

I have read that maybe I have to put the whole path, so I've tried
with svn+ssh://server/cygdrive/E/RepoPath/projects/Project1 with no
luck (the same message).

I have tried also using command line:

set PATH=%PATH%;c:\program files\putty
set svn_ssh=plink -batch -l <myuser> -pw <mypassword>
svn list svn+ssh://server/projects/project1

with the same results, although plink -l <myuser> -pw <mypassword>
gives me access to the ssh.

I don't know what is wrong. Have anyone tried and success using
svn+ssh:// with a W2000Server+cygwin(ssh) server? I have searched the
web and I cannot find an answer.

Thank you in advance,

Fernando Nájera
