RE: svn+ssh on windows (xp)

If you use tortoisesvn through ssh (plink), just use the following path to
your repository:

Svn+ssh://username@ip-adres/path/to/repository

This will invoke a svnserve -t process which will tunnel through the ssh
connection, so you can work on your repository.

If you don't want to type username and password all the time, go to the
tortoisesvn settings and change the path to plink as follows:

Plink.exe -l username -pw password

Keep in mind the security risks here.

Good luck!

Maarten

i tried different combinations. in cygwin, i have added the
svn-win32-1.1.0-rc1/bin directory to the path and SVN_SSH=ssh
peter@DELL5150 ~
$ svn
Type 'svn help' for usage.

peter@DELL5150 ~
$ export SVN_SSH=/usr/bin/ssh

peter@DELL5150 ~
$ cd /cygdrive/e/home/peter/CodeWarriorWork/

peter@DELL5150 /cygdrive/e/home/peter/CodeWarriorWork
$ svn ls svn+ssh://bender/var/lib/svn/repos
svn: Das System kann den angegebenen Pfad nicht finden.

peter@DELL5150 /cygdrive/e/home/peter/CodeWarriorWork
$ export SVN_SSH=ssh

peter@DELL5150 /cygdrive/e/home/peter/CodeWarriorWork
$ svn ls svn+ssh://bender/var/lib/svn/repos
svn: Connection closed unexpectedly

windows "command shell" : added both the svn and cygwin/bin dirs to the path

E:\>svn ls svn+ssh://bender/var/lib/svn/repos
svn: Connection closed unexpectedly

E:\>set SVN_SSH
SVN_SSH=ssh

E:\>set PATH
Path=E:\cygwin\bin;e:\svn-win32-1.1.0-rc1\bin
PATHEXT=.COM;.EXE;.BAT;.CMD;.VBS;.VBE;.JS;.JSE;.WSF;.WSH

E:\>svn ls svn+ssh://bender/var/lib/svn/repos
svn: Connection closed unexpectedly

no, i don't judge subversion for that. i do judge windows, though.

yes, i know. encrypted access is my basic requirement or i could not
use the repository from my home office and i hate wasting two hours for
commuting every day...

i guess i'll try https next...
