TortoiseSVN + Total Commander

I've just setup the TortoiseSVN client with the fresh release of Total Commander 6.5. The result is a wonderful integration of SVN client with my favourite file manager. A little icon next to the file indicates whether the file is modified or not. Diff, commit and revert commands are readily available in the context menu. Even through the SVN repository is half way around the globe and I am working off DSL, the speed still blow away the ClearCase that I use in corporate environment. Also SVN works great offline and diff works without the network!

The only thing I haven't figure out is how to store the session for the svn+ssh protocol. Right now it asks for password for every remote operation, sometimes even twice.

    Nice to see more users of Total Commander+SVN :) A friend came up with a solution for the login problem:
    Create a ssh-key on server for user with ssh-keygen, copy key_pub to .ssh/authorized_keys, copy key to local machine, use puttygen and convert key to pkk file, use pageant to keep key locally and setup tortoisesvn network to use TortoisePlink -i "full path to key" as ssh client... yeah, it takes a bit of fiddeling ;)
    Any problems, email: per_oksvold at hotmail.com

    Maybe you should enable "Show overlay icons" in Total Commander to be able to see that icons. Also since Total Commander is a 32bit application, then you should install 32bit version of TortoiseSVN to be able to see overlay icons.
