I set up Eclipse with git over SSH a while ago. I use public key authorization and stored the Passphrase in the Secure Storage. From that moment on I only had to enter the Secure Storage once every session and could push and pull without any further questions for my passphrase.|
Yesterday the remote repository was moved to a different server. I forgot to add my public key to the authorized keys on the server so I could not log in at first. So I added the key again on the server, but now I keep getting a popup window saying:
"Provide information for ssh://user@server:22
Passphrase for /home/martijn/.ssh/id_rsa"
(Of course user and server are an actual username and hostname.)
If I enter the correct passphrase, I get the same window again, and again, and again.....
If I click cancel, I get either the question to enter the password for the Secure Storage (if it's the first time in the session) or the Push/Pull action is executed.
So I can work on by just clicking cancel every time, but my questions are: why am I gettting this popup and how can I get rid of it.
Eclipse version: 3.7.2
Egit version: 1.3
Thanks in advance for any help
