TSVN: protocol & repository

From: grim1208 <cliff_at_idolware.com>

Hello ALL,

Before I came here to ask for help I have done EXTENSIVE search on google,
asked my hosting provider, done everything in my power to find a solution
myself. Unfortunately was unable to solve my situation.

The problem:
I have subversion (SVN) on my VPS server and am trying to configure things
to get going on them. I started with creating a directory with PuTTY by
typing svn create gg_repo then I went with the PuTTYgen and created my
public key, and private key. I saved both as gg_key.pk and gg_key.ppk. Then
I opened PuTTY and created a session that has my hostname, SSH auth has my
.ppk loaded into it, and saved this session as gregsess. (I logged in with
it and it worked so this is not the error so far) Now I opened Pagaent and
loaded my .ppk into it, so I do not have to type in my .ppk each time I
access my repository.

Now I go to the folder I want to setup for repository, I right click (i have
TSVN) and click "repo-browser" I type the URL as
svn+ssh://gregsess/svn/gg_repo/trunk when i hit enter it asks for my user
password which all is doing what is supposed to because of me calling the
session ('gregsess') in the url, then i hit ok and it tells me "Unable to
write to standard output (stderr)" From googlint this I found out that
TortoisePlink does this because it can't output the correct error, so I went
into network and had the ssh open notepad, this doesn't tell me anyfurther
what the error is other than, "Connection dropped unexpectedly" I tried url
svn+ssh://gregsess/ thnking I can use the folder directory to select where I
want to go, but same errors. My login is correct, the password is correct, I
have done testing with all that. I think possibly I am not using the right
protocol? And most probably I am not using the right repository. I have know
way to find out what my repository is, I even asked my hosting provider what
it was, they didn't know.

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? If not, do any of you have a step by
step procedure to setup my repository so I can start sharing my project
files with my programmers?

ps. sorry for my lack of knowledge here, I have never done SVN or messed
with tortoise, I downloaded the Subversion documentation, but this does not
help me too much. All I have learned so far were from tutorials found from
