Hello, I have been working on this problem for a week and have googled and
searched the list archives here and elsewhere (and read the FAQ entries and
relevant svn manual entries). I'm running the latest subversion on Linux and
the latest TortoiseSVN on Win XP Home (all the latest updates are
installed). I am trying to get ssh+svn access as a user that has full read
and write permissions to the repository on our server.
I have a session called SVNConnection saved in PuTTy which connects to the
server through PuTTy fine. I can connect to the server fine by running plink
SVNConnection from the command line with no error messages at all. If I run
TortoisePlink.exe from the command line it throws only the same cryptic
pop-up error as the TortoiseSVN client itself: "unable to write to standard
output" in a win pop-up error box (even with the -v flag there is no info in
the DOS window).
I found the solution of changing the ssh client in the Tortoise settings to
the TortoisePlink.exe and have done so already, but before I did that I had
PuTTy as the target and I was getting invalid port number errors (no idea if
that helps or not). PuTTy is connecting to port 22 (the ssh port) and the
ssh server is supposedly on 3690 so I'm not sure if that's the issue. Also,
I checked if the svnserve bin was available to the user name by logging in
as the user through the saved PuTTy session and typing "which svnserve" (it
returned the correct path so I assume that means it knows how to find the
binaries for the svn stuff).
How can I get a more detailed error message from TortoisePlink? Also, how
can I verify that svnserve is actually working on port 3690 as I set it up?
I'm a newb to both subversion and tortoise- any info is greatly appreciated.
