Re: installing subversion

I also tried to connect using the userid already configures for ssh, but i had no luck. i cannot connnect that way either... I tried conecting through the URL svn+ssh://ip_address/path_to_repository and i get the following error: "Connection closed unexpectedly". I also tried through the URL svn+ssh://username@ip_address/path_to_repository and i get the same error. I believe that something is happening with ports in the server....maybe i have no port listening and waiting for an svn request... If you know how can i come up with this problem, it would be grateful. Anyway, many thanks for all your help!! I have learned a lot.

That is all correct, if you want to access the repository via the svn:// protocol. But you said you want to access it via ssh, meaning the svn+ssh:// protocol. For that setup, you do not run a daemon, and I believe you do not use any user data in the svnserve.config file either. > so... > > first of all, i dont realy understand in which mode should i run > svnserve. what facts do i have to consider when chhoosing svnserve > mode? > i tried with deamon mode (-d) and tunnel mode (-t).

If you have already created Linux system users, then they can access the repository via svn+ssh:// using those usernames and passwords. Subversion never sees those passwords; they're handled by your server's ssh daemon. -- To reply to the mailing list, please use your mailer's Reply To All function ____________________________________________________________________________________ Sucker-punch spam with award-winning protection.
