CVS, SSH and Passwords

Anyone know of a utility that can be used to "remember" my CVS password? I can only access the server using SSH (similar to SourceForge) and it's getting to be a real pain to type my password every time.

login into the server mkdir .ssh cd .ssh vi authorized_keys2 past your public key in the file (or scp it over, so you don't have to vi it) cd .. chmod 500 .ssh -R And hope that the admin enabled this possibility. You should be able to login now without entering a password. Since your key is machine/user specific, you need to add keys for all your machines/users you are working on locally..

Try out Pageant, which comes with Putty. You can get it to work with WinCVS, and possibly other CVS clients

Hey Matt. The exact instructions are on this site If you are on Windows and use Cygwin, then you'll have ssh-keygen (unless you opted out of that package). Linux and OSX will both have it already. On another note, Eclipse will remember your CVS password for you, even if you're using SSH (if you pick the extssh option when creating your repository location). If you're not using the CVS integration in Eclipse, man are you in for a pleasant surprise. :-) Just email me if you're having trouble... Robert
