[TSVN] SVN+SSH Error * Can't create tunnel : The system cannot find the file specified

First off, I'm a noob. Just started using SVN yesterday. I did my initial
work in cygwin SVN with no problem.

I decided to try out TSVN and ever since then I've been pulling my hair out
trying to figure out why I keep getting this error.

I've been over the SSH FAQ dozens of times checking and rechecking my
settings. I've also dug through the archive with no luck.

The only thing I can think of is that the protocol name is throwing TSVN
off, it is a shared server and instead of running svn+ssh protocol, the
server is running it as svn+XXssh on port 2222. I have made the entries in
the Subversion config file (XXssh = $XXssh ssh -p 2222). I created a keyset,
and sucessfully was able to connect to the ssh with PuTTY using the private
key. I can run pageant and sucessfully connect without password.

I also have tried leaving the external ssh client blank in the settings,
I've tried TortoisePlink both with and without the -l <username> argument.
I've tried just plink, and even the venerable SSH Shell Client, all with no

The Administrator was over today and we ran debug on the server while I
tried to connect to svn+XXssh://username@your.domain.here/Repo/trunk/ via
TSVN and there was no communication with the server when I tried to open

I'm thinking that the protocol might be the problem. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
