Description ymnk 2011-12-25 02:30:59 UTC
It must be nice if ssh connections use OpenSSH's ssh-agent or Pageant
in the public-key authentication.

I'm the author of jsch[1], which has been used in NetBeans for
making ssh connections to the remote.
I have released a proxy program to OpenSSH's ssh-agent and Pageant,
named as jsch-agent-proxy[2].  By using this software, NetBeans will be easily
able to use them in the public authentication, and give users good feelings.

If you are interested in it, try it.
Any feedback is welcome.

It seems the current state of Netbeans supports ssh agent, so working with a project which has svn over ssh is possible. Using it, however, on a project with some externals is annoying, because the authentication window comes up every time.

I found that the code has been committed to support ssh-agent at .
So, this bugzilla entry should be closed.
