SVN + SSH

Hello guys and thank you for the excellent IDE!

When I trying to SVN update excisting project "Authentication Required (Authentication Failed)" dialog popups. After I choose "Authentication with private key", select needed key and press OK - dialog appears again. Using Ubuntu 10.04. Does anybody knows how to solve such a problem?

Thank you for any help and best regards,
Dima

Make sure the key is in OpenSSH format. Use ssh-keygen to convert.

Hi Serge,
How to check if key is in OpenSSH format or not?

I'm trying run

ssh-keygen -i -f ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub > ~/.ssh/id_rsa_openssh.pub

But getting error
uudecode failed.

Most likely you arleady have the key in OpenSSH format, make sure to specify the private key, not the public one for Subversion integration.

Does not works (

After I select private key and press 'Ok' window reappears immediately. Seems there is no connection to server. Possibly something wrong with my keys but I don't know what exactly.

IntelliJ IDEA 11.1 checks key format (and whether the passphrase is correct) when you select it in the prompt dialog.
Can you authenticate with this key file using any other Subversion client?

I can authenticate using the key. And I'm not using passphrase for that key. Is passphrase required?

No, pasphrase can be empty;
what about key format? Do you use new IDEA version and it does not warn about wrong key?

Having the same problem here for about a week or more. Whenever I try to commit my work (on a project that was perfectly OK up until that point) I get message to accept certificate. If I accept it, IDE is trying to connect to SVN server and trying and trying. When it finally fails about 10 minutes later, and if I try to commit again everything is working fine, but, if I exit from PHPStorm and lunch it again, the same procedure starts again.
If I try from the settings menu to test the SVN connection, it's the same story but with the sad end, because the whole IDE will become frozen after hitting the cancel button (after waiting for up to half an hour). If I try to hit Escape button, only way out is killing the process with ctrl+alt+del.
So there is definitely some problem, but where and what, no one knows. Support said to upgrade to 4.0, but that is EAP, and I do not want to take chances with testing version of this IDE.

I'm using PHPStorm 3.0.3. It does not warn about wrong key. Authentication Required dialog just appear again and again.
