HOWTO Stop Being Prompted For Password in TortoiseSVN

Just as you can setup the Subversion client to not prompt for a password every time you communicate with the Subversion server in a similar but not so secure way you can do this with TortoiseSVN.

The easiest way to do this is to right click in Windows Explorer, select Tortoise > Settings. Then in the Settings window select Network. Then in the SSH client set use the Tortoise SSH client, TortoisePlink, to use your username and password. For example:

D:\TortoiseSVN\bin\TortoisePlink.exe -l foo -pw bar

  1. Thanks a lot. That’s what I wanted to have. I found solutions where you had to create public keys and all that stuff. But this solution is like my kind of solution :)

  3. The username usually is written in the URL of the repository setting: svn+ssh://[username]@[server]/[path_repository] so to the the Tortoise SSH client, TortoisePlink, to use your username and password you is enough with:
    “C:Program FilesTortoiseSVNbinTortoisePlink.exe” -pw

  4. Tortoise SVN
    right click on desktop -> Tortoise SVN-> settings -> saved data -> authentication data (button press ‘clear’) !
    try logging in now again !
