Hello,

I'm using Subclipse to connect to an SVN repository via svn+ssh and a private key (the server has the paired public key). The interface is SVNKit (Pure Java). After I enter the svn+ssh://repository... address I am prompted for credentials. I specify the username and private key file (I did not set a passphrase so it is left blank) and confirm. The window pops up again and this goes on indefinitely. No console message is provided.

Note 1: Marking "Save information" seems to have no effect. If there is a cache I'm supposed to be deleting this could help. I already deleted the keyring file in eclipse.

Note 2: I wasn't sure if the private key should be in SSH2 or OpenSSH formats, but I tried both and there is no difference.

Specifications:
Windows 7 64 bit
eclipse 4.2.1 64 bit
Subclipse 1.8.16
Subversion client adapter 1.8.3
SVNKit client adapter 1.7.5.1

If there is any other information or log file I should provide I would be happy to do so.

Nir,

There is a dedicated Eclipse forum for this:

http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/f/73/
NNTP: eclipse.technology.subversive

I don't know how active, but if it is, someone there has a much better
chance of knowing what you're facing.

You might also contact the SVNKit forum as you appear to have extra
steps beyond what is needed when targeting pure Subversion.

Thanks Russell, I didn't see that eclipse forum; it doesn't seem to be so active but worth a try. I posted on subclipse.tigris.org but didn't get any reply for several days. I'll try SVNKit's forum. Part of the issue is not knowing which of the components (eclipse, subclipse, SVNKit) is the cause.

You've chosen SVNKit because you needed a Windows solution, right? When
I used Subclipse, I accessed Subversion from both Windows and Linux, but
the repository was on a Linux server, very easily set up.

If you need a total Windows solution, this won't help very much, but
here's my experience:

I hope the other forum will be active. Have you tried stackoverflow?
Because you tag your question with the technologies involved, it's very
specific and people monitoring those tags get notified immediately. It's
often very fast.

Best of luck.

Oh, I forgot to remind you that Git is also an option and an even better
one than Subversion. I don't personally use (Eclipse) eGit, preferring
the command line, but I have a colleague here who does use it
successfully. We all use Git, though.

You can get an Atlassian/Bitbucket Git account to host your project for
free. GitHub will also do it for free, but only if you're willing to
make it public. You can also set up Git on Windows yourself, though it's
a bit more of a challenge I think than Subversion with SVNKit (see
http://therightstuff.de/CommentView,guid,b969ea4d-8d2c-42af-9806-de3631f4df68.aspx
if interested). I set up and administered Git on Linux for over a year.
The best route, though, is Bitbucket.

If you get to the point where you'd like to throw in the towel on
Subversion, I might be a lot more help to you, just ask me. (And, the
eGit forum is pretty active, I think.)

The SVN repository is not under my control and already set on a Linux server. I'm looking to access it through Windows as you assumed.
The eclipse forum you mentioned earlier is for Subversive, not Subclipse, so no help there save a tip that the problem has to do with SVNKit and not subclipse. I'll try Stackoverflow as there seems to be some registration problem for me on the SVNKit,com mailing list.

Thanks again.
