IDEA: Subversion Integration "Authentication Failed" with private key

Hello!

I'm using: Intelli j IDEA 7.0.3 build: 7757 on Windows XP.
I can't browse my svn repository - I get "Authentication Failed" when trying
to authenticate with a private key.
I can use plink/putty to autologin to the server with this private key.

Can anyone help ?

Cheers,
pseudo

IDEA can only use OpenSSH private keys (this is different to the type that
Putty is able to use in saved sessions).

Using puttygen:

Conversions>Import Key (id_dsa)

Conversions>export OpenSSH Key (save as: IDEA.ppk)

To check that it's successfully converted:

Press 'Load' button (idea.ppk)

You should get a message along the lines of:

" Successfully imported foreign key (OpenSSH SSH-2 private key).

To use in putty sessions you will need to press 'save private key' button. "

You should be able to use this key with IDEA.

Latest build of Diana, I followed these steps and authentication still fails. It worked previously then when I reinstalled it now fails.

All works fine in Putty.

The second post was very helpful. Thanks.

This appears to be an issue in 8.0.1 as well. I think that, at the very least, this restriction should be documented.
