Flash Builder 4 / Subversive / OSX / SVN

Recently I had to install the Subversive plug-in in Flash Builder 4, but was unable to due to consistent errors during installation.

FlashBuilder -> Help -> Install new Software

I’m not sure if this is a bug in FlashBuilder 4, but this link just was just giving me errors during installation. If you are also having this problem, you can try another location that worked for me:

TortoiseSVN, PuTTY, MediaTemple, GridServer, WinXP set-up

I just managed to get TortoiseSVN connecting via SSH to my new subversion repository but it wasn’t easy (MediaTemple (gs), Windows XP).
Once the repo had been set-up I could connect via PuTTY without any problems, however trying to get TortoiseSVN to connect proved more difficult.

Here is a great tutorial “How to use TortoiseSVN to access Mediatemple subversion over svn+ssh”, however everything worked for me apart from gaining access via TortoiseSVN. Every time I tried to connect I would get this error message: “Network connection closed unexpectedly.”

Eventually I discovered that the PuTTY Configuration ‘Default Settings’ must not have any user entered data stored in it. The only way I could get this to work is to create a new Saved Sessions value and store my data in there. Also rather than putting my username in with the address (as done in the example above), I entered my username into Connection -> Data -> Auto-login username.


i.e. Settings for new Saved Session:

Session -> Host Name (or IP address) : (##### your gs number)
Connection -> Data -> Auto-login username :

Then using PuTTY + Pageant I was able to connect using TortoiseSVN.
