CVS with SSH

Does anyone have this working in 815? The connection says it tests fine, but then I receive "Cannot load items (null)" message when it tries to scroll the repository structure. Wonder if it is my setup, my cvs client libraries, ???

It works like a charm with my setup. ssh authenticates using private/public keys
(no password). I just pointed it to my private key, it picked up all cvs
settings from my existing cvs project and that's it!

hmm, when I started Aurora second time and tried to execute one of cvs commands
it told me that it does not know anymore where my private key is. I pointed it
to the right place. After that everything seems back to normal.
Note that before starting Aurora second time I worked in Ariadna for some time,
but they have their settings in different places, so I am not sure whether
Ariadna had something to do with it or not.

Well, I have some trouble. I can, seemingly, do a checkin/checkout, but if I try do make a diff I receive nothing, and history just answer wrong method (I look like the :ext: is lost somewhere...)

Do you use "ext" method or "ssh"? Please look up it in the one of your
CVS/Root files

It's problem with importing your old settings...
Remove all old configurations (they are shown in the configuration list
dialog but they are empty) and create them again

I installed to a clean directory structure. New IDEA home and separate config directories from my current install. Files show blue when changed but when I run an update I get an "Unknown Error" in the CVS view but no error on the console. If I try to create a new IDEA project and checkout everything from CVS I get the "Cannot Load Items(null)" in the CVSROOT setup. I am running :ext: and use putty/plink as my SSH client.

Nothing specific was written in the root files, so I guess it was ssh whereas I intended to use ext. I removed my whole cvs tree and did the checkout with IntelliJ, now it's working fine. Sorry for the inconvenience.

We have not been able to get CVS/SSH to work with IDEA.

I am using Windows XP Pro; the CVS server in on a linux box. I am able to use cygwin ssh with WinCVS, although a dos windows pops each time to ask for a password. We tried creating a signature to avoid this but never managed.

Now with IDEA, I have set CVS_RSH to ssh.exe, but the dos window never pops up.

"ssh -v " from within cygwin tells me that it is offering private key .ssh/identity, and public keys id_rsa and id_dsa, but these are apparently not accepted as the prompt comes back "Authentications that can continue: publickey,password,keyword-interactive".

Any suggestions?

If you are using :ext: connection method set path to the external RSH and
private key file in the Project Properties->VCS Support page.

You might add to your documentation that RedHat 9 disables automatic ssh login by default; the "HostKey" lines in "sshd_config" need to be uncommented. This was my obstacle.
