Issue with SSL client certificates on Windows 7 64bit

Hi,

I'm having an issue setting up TortoiseSVN to use a client certificate
to connect to an https repository. I am able to get the Cygwin CLI
version of svn to connect simply by adding the following to the relevant
group in the servers configuration file:

ssl-client-cert-file=/home/craske01/.subversion/craske01-cert.pfx

ssl-authority-files=/home/craske01/.subversion/ca.pem

 

Doing the same for TortoiseSVN only works if the same certificate is
also added to the Windows certificate store. The moment I delete that
certificate from the Windows store, it is no longer able to connect.

 

I'm not sure if I have somehow managed to accidentally configure
something that causes this behaviour, and have not yet had the time to
set it up again from scratch on another machine to make sure. I have
already tried deleting the auth directory.

 

If it is somehow related, I am going via an http proxy as there is no
direct connectivity to the repository. However, the same proxy settings
do work fine for the Cygwin CLI version of svn.

 

I have also tried configuring it both with and without a password in the
servers file, to no effect. Any ideas?

 

Regards,

Edmund Craske
