SSH and subversion

Threaded View
Has anyone out there got tools or notes for managing SSH tunneling for
subversion? Or especially for keeping the subversion users out of the
operating system itself? I've got a source control system I'm replacing, and
for various reasons do not want to put accounts with shell access on it: I
don't think I can prevent that easily if I use SSH tunneling.

Hi, im in it right now.

I have some basic notes, im using a Solaris server, windows clients
(tortoise and command-line) all with SSH, but in spanish tell me if you
want this notes.

You already have clients and server working ?

In the subversion official book, chapter 6 topic "SSH authentication
and authorization" there are several issues that will help you.

To avoid users login in the O.S. i think you need some shell scripts
using "trap" and "exit" and to control the command issue by SVN check
the topic "SSH configuration tricks - Initial setup" on the book and
chapter mentioned

Yes. I have a manager who, understandably, does not want the download users
to have shell access on the server. I'm not sure subversion will work
properly if I give the users a "/sbin/nologin" shell or similarly restrict
their shell access.

Thanks, I'll double check those. Fortunately, that book is also kept online
by the publishers.
