Hi

just a further update

It seems on solaris 10, the SSH inplementation is Sun_SSH_1.1.3 whereas the old version was openssh based.

So does anybode know if it is possible to connect to a Sun SSH cvs repository from an eclipse client

Paul

Hi

hope someone can help, we have several eclipse java developers accessing a CVS repository on solaris. The connection is using ssh and all was working fine until solaris was upgraded to solaris 10. Since the upgrade, we cannot get eclipse to work with solaris. The solaris admin says the connections areaccepted, but we get an unknown response received from the server in eclipse. I have tried downloading the latest (eclipse helios 3.6.1)

We have tried to setup non-password based authentication (using just keys) and still no luck. Its definitely the SSH version on solaris because the solaris admin temporarly restored the old ssh version, eclipse worked again.

anybody else seen this problem

thanks

Paul

I hadn't seen anything like this in the past, but similar problems that
were reported against Solaris had to do with the location of the cvs
binary (/usr/local/bin in Solaris 10) *and* the fact that the eclipse
ssh connection doesn't execute some of the files (like users with a
login shell of bash don't get .bash_profile, only .bashrc, etc).

That's why sshing from the command line would work, since the login
would set up the paths correctly.

IIRC a way to test this would be to make sure that you have a .bashrc
and that it updates PATH to allow access to "cvs" ... that would at
least prove if it's related to the path (with potentially some more
experimentation).

it could also explain the difference (openssh might have been executing
more profile/rc scripts than the new Solaris-SSH).

This might not be the problem at all (the posts I found were >2 years
old) though.

HI Paul

thanks for your reply. My guess is that there is some incompatability in ssh between eclipse ssh and sun ssh.

We worked around the problem by getting the unix admins to run the old ssh (openssh based )daemon on a non default port. We also can access the default sun ssh daemon using tools such as tortoise cvs if we really ge tstuck

regards

Paul
