tortoisesvn/putty public key authentication - invalid port

Hello,

I am trying to configure TortoiseSVN to log into a SVN repository using SSH key authentication. Essentially I am trying to implement the SSH authentication and configuration tricks as described in chapter 6 of the SVN Book.

Steps taken:
1. Download and install TortoiseSVN 1.3.5
2. Generated RSA2 public and private keys via puttygen.exe
3. Installed the public key on the Linux SVN server
4. Created a Putty session that uses the appropriate private key
5. Verified that the putty session works correctly, no login or password required
6. Configured TortoiseSVN to use Putty as its SSH client

Problems:
1. svn+ssh://MySession/repos
    Generates an "Invalid Port" message from Putty
2. Changed SVN client to TortoisePlink.exe
    Generates "Unable to write to standard output" message
3. Changed /etc/services port 3690 to SSH
    No change...

My assumption is that TortoiseSVN causing Putty to use a port other than 22.

I have checked the mail list and was unable to find a solution. (I also tried creating a brand new Session in Putty as suggested in the list but it did not work either)

What is the key?

TIA

Allen
