Subject [jUDDI-developers] ssh and sourceforge
Date Sun, 13 Jan 2002 10:56:02 GMT
Hey guys,

I figure most of you are using cygwin, so my latest adventure should be of
interest.  My plan was to upload my ssh public key to sourceforge, so I
wouldn't have to type my password anymore when issuing CVS commands.  I
generated an ssh key pair with ssh-keygen and uploaded ~/.ssh/identity.pub
to sourceforge (under account options .. be sure not to introduce any line
breaks).  However, after I went through that exercise it didn't work for me
(I was still being prompted for passwords.)  After playing with ssh in
verbose mode, it turns out that the SSH2 protocol is negotiated between my
client and SF.  I can't seem to generate an SSH2 key with ssh-keygen, only
SSH1, so now I force SSH1 mode when using SF (-1 option to ssh).  To have it
all work transparently, create an ssh1.bat with the following line: ssh -1
%1 %2 %3 %4 %5   .. and used ssh1.bat instead of ssh for CVS_RSH enviro
variable.  Now cvs commands should work without typing a password (which
used to really annoy me.)  Kind of a hack, but if somebody finds a way to
generate SSH2 keys, please let me know.
