"Network Connection Closed Unexpectedly" error while using svn+ssh

If you got a "Network Connection Closed Unexpectedly" error while using svn+ssh (here is a nice HOWTO) then you should comment (or remove) "mesg y" in /etc/bashrc or in $HOME/.bashrc

Worked for me as a charm :)

I have tried the above, however their is no mesg y in Bashrc, what would be my next step?

Try to force "mesg n" in your local bashrc. If this will not help - check out JNI version used by Eclipse. There was a post somewhere talking about this.

OK. Here's how I fixed this (on Mac OS X, but fix should work on any client)

This particular issue arises when you are using a non-standard port (let's say 12001 for sake of example) for your SSH server.

Apparently the SVN client experiences syntax errors when given a port address on a command line like this one:

svn list svn+ssh://

So, to fix this, you need to create a client-side config file for SSH like this:

cd ~
cd .ssh
vi config (create a config file like the one that follows)

Config file located in ~/.ssh/config:

User username
Port 12001

Then, issue your svn+ssh command WITHOUT the port like this:

svn list svn+ssh://

That's it!

Hope that helps.

One historical instance concerned spinning a coin with a short size of plastic wire. The weight and size of the coin can be accepted by the machine and credits can be granted. However, the spin created by the plastic wire would trigger the coin to exit via the reject chute into the payout tray. This specific rip-off has become out of date as a result of} 카지노사이트 improvements in newer slot machines.
