IDEA fails to connect to SVN+SSH repository

Hi,

I am trying to connect to a SVN repostiory: svn+ssh://frodo.xxxx.xxxx.xxx/srv/svn/repository. However, the dialog to enter the credentials keeps coming back with "Authentication Failed" in the title bar.

That same repository URL works with svn on the command line, Versions and in Cornerstone (checkout/history/checkin). The server is set up to use public key authentication only. The username is entered properly and I have selected the appropriate private key file in OpenSSH format.

This is IDEA 8.1.2 (#9852) on OS X on Java 1.5.0_16

root@frodo:/etc# svn --version
svn, version 1.5.1 (r32289)
   compiled Dec 31 2008, 06:42:45



 


root@frodo:/etc# uname -a
Linux frodo.xxxx.xxx 2.6.26-2-openvz-amd64 #1 SMP Wed May 13 16:46:17 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux



 

Any help is appreciated...

Thanks,
Dirk

Sorry, I was travelling for the last couple of days. Yes, I am sure that this is OpenSSH. The Putty format is AFAIK only used by Windows software.

MacPro:.ssh dirk$ ssh -v
OpenSSH_5.1p1, OpenSSL 0.9.7l 28 Sep 2006



MacPro:.ssh dirk$ cat id_dsa
-----BEGIN DSA PRIVATE KEY-----
Proc-Type: 4,ENCRYPTED
DEK-Info: DES-EDE3-CBC,86104812A4090DB4


. . .
-----END DSA PRIVATE KEY-----



and

MacPro:.ssh dirk$ cat id_rsa
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----


. . .
-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----


Both keys are valid for ssh logins on the remote machine.

Thanks,

Dirk
