Re: CVS SSH with 1080

I still can't get CVS to work with SSH in Build 1080 (or 1035). It
always demands a private key, even though I don't want to use one. I
saw somewhere else on this list about using a connection style for
CVS with SSH, but see no where to configure this in the settings for
CVS. Anyone else encounter this?

Thanks,

Dave Forslund

I ran into the same problem, and as yet have no resolution. I am
currently trying to decide whether I want to fight through setting up
ssh-agent or not. (As an alternative approach on MacOS X, BBEdit has a
section on setting up SSH for it, which uses environment plist entries
rather than .cshrc setenvs, and I am wondering whether the same magic
will work.)

I am still using build 1050 on MacOS X, until I get feedback from a
braver soul than I that a later build is a must-have.

Keychain does a nice job of managing ssh-agent processes and keys for you.

Looks like the author has made Mac OS X fixes in the changelog, so it ought to work.

I don't want to use a private key. I can run this way quite
succssfully on version 3.0.5. I have the same problem with 1035
as with 1080. It is an Aurora problem, as I see it, as they
don't seem to support full full ssh cvs capability.

thanks,

I got this to work by adding a private key (even though I'm not using it).

There is an additional confusion. I couldn't find where to set the
right variables on build 1089 (or 1080), because the option wasn't there
in the settings for version control. I had to pretend I as going to
check something out and then it asked me to fill everything in (even
though I had already checked it out). But CVS seems to work using
TortoisePlink on WinXP.
