  • Subhash,

    We responded to your case in the Tech Support queue, but since the question was also asked here, I will post the response here as well.

    It seems from the error message you see that the userid and password you have are failing to authenticate.

    But I don't think svn+ssh:// works with password authentication. You may have to set up public-key authentication, like in this example:

    Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    Hi Support,


    Thanks for info. I have configured using public authentication
    key on my server.

     My question:

    How do i configure public key or passphrase in
    codeCollaborator server and configured public key passphrase on svn server.

     Please find the attached error in access cco-server to
    cco-client and my public key config command list

     Please provide me steps for adding public key in code
    collaborator server.

  • Here is the reply that was given to the question when also asked in the Tech Support case:

      You have to configure the ssh keys with no passphrase.  We call out to the ssh commandline tools to connect to your svn server, and the terminal input redirection is nontrivial. If you really must have a passphrase, you'll need to use an ssh-agent and then do a manual ssh first so you only have to enter your passphrase the first time and subsequent times will not be prompted for it.
