CVS broken in 7111

I am unable to connect to our CVS server through SSH. Earlier versions
all work. I am testing using the "Test Connection" button in CVS Roots
dialog.

I am using the "ext" method to connect.

The message i get from IDEA is:
"Cannot establish external connection. Response from server was: Root"

I tested specifying "use internal ssh implementation" and use of my
private key file. In this case, IDEA fails to connect to the server at all.

I also tested the "ssh" method to connect with the same symptoms as "use
internal ssh implementation".

I am able to use Subversion as normal which is running on the same
server connecting using my private key over ssh.

Did anything in particular change in the latest EAP?
Any idea's on how i could get it working?

Thanks

I've had the same problem with build 7111, over the weekend, running on XP/2000 through ssh. CVS operations seemed to connect, wait for ages then returned an error (in Idea window) that said "Error: Unhandled Response: Root".

I still have build 7087 installed and it works fine.

"Known issues:

CVS update deadlock, please see http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-14052 for details.
The workaround is to enable the CVS output logging."

This should help.

I didn't realise it was the same thing. I remember reading this at some
stage. In any case, i enabled CVS output logging but the problem was
still there.

I have since updated to the latest EAP and all seems to work now :).

Thanks for your help.

Regards

Peter
