SSH + CVS broken?? (IDEA 3.0.5rc)

Hi there,

I don't know if this topic has been raised but I did a quick search and skim through a few posts and found nothing related to what I had just experienced.

Does "ext" access method work at all for IDEA 3.0.5rc?

I've setup my project with "ext" as the access method, and fill in the other information. When I tried to do a "status" on a file, I get the following message:


Why is IDEA trying to connect to localhost? I specified the host setting as "foo.net".

Locally, my settings are fine. I can do a cvs -d :ext:foo.net:/cvsroot co module and it'll work like a charm.

So, to try something different, I started a new project and attempted to use "ext" access method again. This time it was worse. I was prompted with countless "Could not save project" dialog boxes, and they would come one after another each time I clicked the "OK" button to get rid of it.

I don't know what else to do to make this work.

Maybe someone out there knows more than I do.

It's supposed to work. Note that ssh v2 protocol doesn't work.

Known bug in #859: idea can't save newly created projects.

Wrong. IDEA 3.0.* should work with all protocols, that are supported
by the specified cvs executable.

Seems even "four eyes" aren't enough - didn't even notice the "IDEA 3.0.5rc"
in the subejct.

I'll have to exchange my second pair soon :)
