TECH: SSH Tunnel for Subversion

Here are the steps for configuring Subversion on Windows to use SVN tunnel

  1. Generate a private key for use with putty by running “puttygen” tool. Save the private key file.
  2. From puttygen window “Copy” the public key part and insert it into $HOME/.ssh/authorized_keys file on Linux to enable logins without a password.
  3. Create a putty connection (we call it “linux1”) to your Linux machine and configure it to use the private key you saved earlier.
  4. Fix your SVN config file to enable it to use SSH tunneling. Edit the config file %USERPROFILE%\Application Data\Subversion\config and in the tunnels section add the following line:
    ssh = $SVN_SSH c:/tools/plink
  5. We are now ready to use SVN. Check out with SVN URL: svn+ssh://linux1/path-svn-repository
