While trying to access svn on an ubuntu server from a Windows 7 laptop, one person on our team was getting
svn: Network connection closed unexpectedly
Other team members were able to check-out from the repository without issue, so we knew the problem was related to the laptop.
We’re using the SSH Secure Shell client (now Tectia), TortoiseSVN and SilkSVN. Instead of svn+ssh, we’re using an ssh tunnel.
The user can login to the ubuntu server using ssh just fine. We’re using keys instead of passwords, and that is working without issue.
