RE: svn+ssh from Windows commandline (client) (documentation request)

ssh server ls /path/to/repos gives me the same kind of output.
as I say - I can ssh in to the server and the use ssh with file:// urls

The
< svn: The system cannot find the file specified.
is coming from the svn program on windows. Maybe it is looking for the
config file mentioned in the svnserve-setup section of the svn book.

It would really help to have a section in the book or the FAQ specifically
addressing how to setup subversion for use on the client side - obviously a
smaller business than the server side, and somewhat different

Anyway, I've got around this problem now by installing svn within cygwin and
using it there! (seems to work "out of the box")

best
