Does this affect the > use of pageant? Hmm, I just tested pretty much exactly the same situation and it works just great. The CVSROOT I used is :ssh:ogiesen at cvs.cvsgui.sf.net:/cvsroot/cvsgui. My local Windows username is a different one. My private key is loaded into Pageant. I can run commands on the server without having to enter my password. For testing I renamed the whole PuTTY registry key to simulate a first-time run. At the first attempt to run a command, I got the message about caching the server's fingerprint which I confirmed. From then on everything worked without any problems at all. Cheers, Oliver ---- ------------------ JID: ogiesen at jabber.org ICQ: 18777742 (http://wwp.icq.com/18777742)
