CVS over SSH in IntelliJ 977

I 'm trying to connect to a CVS server over SSH.
Although I use a private key file (which is definitely valid), IntelliJ keeps asking me for a password.

Any idea if this is a bug?

Where can I find some more extensive documentation on how to set things up?

"ssh" does not use private key file (it's internal implementation of ssh).
Use "ext" connection.

Hi Olesya,

Thanks for the reply.
Any plans for supporting a private key file in the near future?

Currently, we are trying to figure out how to connect from Mac OS X.
On Windows platforms, we can use "putty" for these purposes. Any sugestions as to what "putty-like" application we can useon a Mac platform?

Did you try "ssh"?

I'm sorry, but I wasn't very clear as to what exactly we want.

1. Connection to CVS server over SSH with a private key file on a Windows platform. For this, we used putty and plink and the setup went just fine (after a couple of hours of fiddling) on version 977.

2. Connection to CVS server over SSH with a private key file on a Mac OS X platform. For this, we cannot use putty and plink to perform some parts of the setup. What should we use instead???

open the terminal.

type "man ssh"

panther version == "OpenSSH_3.6.1p1+CAN-2003-0693, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090702f"
