TortoiseSVN is a Subversion client.

Setting up key authentication for SSH connectionEdit

  • Create the key with puttygen and save the private key
  • Download pageant and add it to the Windows startup, with the private key as its argument
  • Add the public key (displayed in puttygen) to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys, e.g. to set up a user called test:
sudo mkdir -p /home/$user/.ssh
sudo nano -w /home/$user/.ssh/authorized_keys # Paste the key into this file on this step
sudo chown -R $user:$user /home/$user/.ssh
sudo chmod -R 700 /home/$user/.ssh
  • Now you can check out a repository with key authentication
