svn+ssh not asking for authentication

Hi all,

I have used Tortoise successfully over the course of the last years on several machines. Recently, I bought a new Windows 7 64bit machine, and Tortoise belonged to the first programs I installed.

Tried to connect to a repo I have on a shared server (hostgator) using:


I know this is correct, as I have no issues connecting to it using Subversive in Eclipse. However, using Tortoise I get the following error:

PuTTY Fatal Error
Network error: Connection timed out

The weird thing is that T. never asked for authentication credentials, although they are required. I read somewhere the following in one of the many results google gave me on the topic (none of them was related or solved my issue):

[If the server is set up for SSPI authentication, Subversion never gets the chance to ask for authentication because it itself is never asked
for it - the SSPI auth happens in the background.
This can happen if your server has the "guest" account enabled but "guest" isn't allowed to access the repository.]

Since I have a shared server, I'm not sure about this situation. However, I don't think it will solve my problem, as like I said, I have no issues with Subversive, and I assume they use similar techniques behind the scene.

Using putty, I have no problems accessing my host on

www.mysite.com at port 2222

It immediately asks for my username and password after the console pops up.

Oh, and something else that is weird. I don't see the overlayed icons on the folders and files in the explorer for the projects that I have successfully checked-out using SubVersive.

I hope I have given enough information. If not, please ask. And obviously, I hope even more that I can use my preferable SVN front-end in the short future again.
