The problem I'm having with SSH and CVS with IDEA hasn't been addressed
by anyone to my knowledge. Even though I can use a public key, this
doesn't avoid typing a password, since the private key needs to be
protected by a password (otherwise there isn't much security, since the
key could be stolen). I think I really need to be able to enter the
password for SSH login with CVS under IDEA. This used to work with an
earlier version of IDEA, but doesn't with 3.0.

I sure would appreciate suggestions on how to do this, or have IDEA pop
a window for a password (as occurs with TortoiseCVS, for example).

Thanks,

Dave Forslund

I use pageant which requires me to specify the password once when I load
it then somehow validates all other requests. You can get it from here:

THe key -doesn't- need to have a password. Yes it makes security an issue
if the key is stolen, but it does work.
