Subject [jira] Created: (WAGONSSH-54) scp with password in settings.xml still asks password
Date Wed, 25 Oct 2006 10:24:40 GMT
scp with password in settings.xml still asks password

                 Key: WAGONSSH-54
             Project: wagon-ssh
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.0-alpha-5
         Environment: java version "1.5.0_07"
Maven version: 2.0.4
Linux version 2.6.12-12mdk...(... (4.0.1-5mdk for Mandriva Linux release 2006.0)) #1 Fri Sep

            Reporter: marco p
            Priority: Minor

But I could not find an answer to the problem, or an explanation of why all these people experienced
the same difficulty.

I guess it is just a matter of some complex configuration that would benefit from a clearer
