Re: svn+ssh authentication

Hi Stefan,

After much monkeying around and help from the list I got svn working
with ssh just as you are requesting. The way I understand it you dont
need a daemon running for ssh. You need a valid ssh account and access
permissions to the repository directorie(s). So my setup is like this:

Linux box(saturn):
/srv/svn - svn group has 775 on this and subfolders.

To connect from other machine with tortoisSVN I had to add my username
and password to the ssh command line. In windows explorer:
1. File->TortoisSVN->Settings
2. Click "Network" tab
3. Under "SSH client:" I added login info so my line lookes like:

C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\TortoisePlink.exe -l chris -pw <passwd>

Then to browse repository from windows explorer:
1. File->Repo-Browser:
2. I enter: svn+ssh://saturn/srv/svn

And it all works.

I realize that having the login info setup like that is a security risk,
but hey Im running windows to begin with!
