RE: svn+ssh from Windows commandline (client) -- solution

From: Tim Diggins <tim_at_red56.co.uk>

I located the config file (c:\Documents and Settings\mylogon\Application

and inferred from it that i need to set an environment variable SVN_SSH with
the path to my ssh client. (escaping backslashes or using forward slashes)


set SVN_SSH=c:/cygwin/bin/ssh.exe

and it worked!

I suggest that the windows readme has a note to this effect! It's true that
the location of the config file is discussed in "advanced topics" in the
book, and the SVN_SSH env variable is mentioned in Server configuration,
but as I'm doing client configuration, and just doing basic config, it
doesn't strike me that this is in the right area!

Many thanks.
