Thanks, but the article does not really address the problem.
(Btw: the original article is here:

You see, I *can* check out files from my Subversion repository
(on another server, running Linux) using one of these methods
on my Windows machine:

+ TortoiseSVN (using TortoisePlink.exe as SSH client)
      with the URL 'svn+ssh://foo.com/var/subversion/myproject'

+ the 'svn co' DOS command on Windows
      with the URL 'https://foo.com/svn/myproject'

- but *not* with the 'svn co' DOS command on Windows
      with the URL 'svn+ssh://foo.com/var/subversion/myproject'

Note the difference: 'svn co' can use 'https' but not 'svn+ssh'.
(The other URL difference is irrelevant to the problem).

There *seems* to be a way to set up the 'svn' DOS command on Windows
so that it can use 'svn+ssh' (at least, there *should* be :-) . The
lore whispers about an environment variable named SVN_SSH. But it's not
clearly described in any of the wizard's tomes.

It appears that SVN_SSH could be set up to point at TortoisePlink.exe
that comes with TortoiseSVN. Or must it point at plink.exe that comes
with PuTTY? I have tried many different variants, no luck. Does the
SVN_SSH spell work on Windows at all?

(I can log in a tty session to the server with PuTTY, no problem).
