David, Thank you very much for your help!! I could eliminate the error message!! i dont know really what the problem was, but i think it was something related to the Plink.exe i tried to ran the plink.exe from the console cmd and then tried again from tortoiseSVN and everything went right. That was all. Then i got a second error message, that was due to access permissions. i accessed the server prom putty and changed permissions to the users and groups. Then, everything went ok. so now i can access the repository successfully!!

Our repository is on a linux box and the first time there were directories in the repository path that didn’t have permissions opened up for everyone to access. I went through and added everyone to the same group as the user that the repository was created by (as well as the user used to start svnserve). I also saw this error for 1 person who used Putty to ssh to the repository server before the repository was setup. Putty creates ssh keys on your local machine the first time you connect and for some reason svn was using a different ssh key when attempting to connect. I had to go into the registry and remove the ssh key entries that Putty created, reconnect using Putty (which generates a new ssh key) and then connect. I ran into this, yet a 3rd time with a different repository, where I started svnserve in the wrong directory. To avoid this, I used the –r option when starting svnserve and specified the path to the top directory where all the repositories live. Hope this helps. --------------------------------------------- David Croxford | Sr. QA Analyst | Paciolan | Your tickets, your way. dcroxford_at_paciolan.com | www.paciolan.com --------------------------------------------- From: Mariana Draper [mailto:murid21_at_yahoo.com] Sent: Wednesday, January 24, 2007 12:43 PM To: David Croxford Subject: connection closed unexpectedly David, i found the following email you sent some time ago concerning the error message "connection closed unexpectedly". I am now facing the same problem. I cannot access the repository while my coworker can. we are trying to access by svn+ssh://user@ip_address/path_to the repository how did you solve the problem? Thank you in advance! Mariana. From: David Croxford <dcroxford_at_paciolan.com> Date: 2006-09-21 01:48:17 CEST I worked through my last problem and now have a new one.... I'm using svnserve. I created a repository, went to a remote machine, and checked it out, changed some files and committed the changes. All was well. I sent out the tortoiseSVN instructions to a coworker and when she tried to do a checkout, she got the error message "Connection closed unexpectedly". So, I tried using her login information on my laptop and was able to do the checkout. Here is what I'm doing: - I right click, get the menu and select "SVN checkout" - URL of repository gets set to: svn+ssh://joeuser@" - Checkout directory gets set to: QA - Click OK When 2 of my coworkers try this, they get the ssh key confirmation popup, they click yes, they enter the password twice and then it dies with the error listed above. I come to my laptop, follow the same steps and use their login information and it works fine. I searched on google and it appears that many others have had a similar problem, but no solutions are ever posted....although I did find 1 person who had a solution "go back to CVS"...which I don't want to do.
