Hi, all.
I'm trying to connect to SVN server on a remote linux machine via SSH. I'm running windows XP.
I tried to manage it using this recipe, but I'm getting refused by server every time, so I want to check some basic things : what credential data do I need for this ? I am equipped with SVN userName & password. Do I also need linux account to reach SVN server ?

Yes. There's no server listening specifically for Subversion requests via ssh; what happens is the svn client logs into your account on the remote machine.

If you don't have an account, or it's inconvenient for the develpers to have accounts, then Subversion supports an https protocol, in which a web server on the repository machine services clients. No login account is needed for that protocol.

Uf. Are you sure ? In the meantime I've got an other recipe :
I setted SVN interface for subclipse to SVNKit, and after that I've checkouted projects from SVN server without problems. "username@" goes into an URI of repository, and password goes into eclipse's prompt, and that's all.
Am I missing something ?
