SVN: Can't create tunnel: The system cannot find the file specified

I'm trying to setup Subversion on Windows 2003 R2. I used the One-Click
Subversion setup to install subversion and setup my first repository.
I'm able to access it fine on a remote client. But when I tried to
implement SSH, I ran into a world of hurt.


I've installed Putty, and I'm able to access the server. However, when
I try to access the repository (locally on the server through a DOS
box), I get the following error:


D:\Projects>svn co svn+ssh://jlee@

svn: Can't create tunnel: The system cannot find the file specified.


I've researched the mailing list archives, and I've tried the
suggestions (including copying the Plink.exe to the same directory as
the svn.exe file), but I'm still getting the same error. I've also
tried to check to see if there's a case issue with the repository files
by running the SVN command using the "LS" option in the repository


D:\svnrepos>svn ls

svn: '.' is not a working copy


I'm not sure if this means I have an issue with the repository.


The subversion version that was installed was 1.3.2. I'm aware that a
later version, 1.4.4 is now available, but I'm not sure if this would
solve my issues and put what functionality I do have with SVN at risk.


Anyone have any suggestions on how to resolve this issue?
