eclipse cvs problem


I cannot use cvs within eclipse to connect to the server, but when I use cvs in terminal everything works fine. Anyone knows what the problem might be?

ERROR Message: Could not connect to :extssh:hongyang@bleong.ndslab.net:/var/cvsroot: CVS communication error: org.eclipse.team.internal.ccvs.ssh2.CVSSSH2ServerConnection$SSH2IOException: Network is unreachable
Network is unreachable

Hi -

1. What version of Eclipse are you running (mine happens to be Eclipse 3.4; yours is probably newer)?

2. Where is your CVS repository?
Please cut/paste your command-line login (omit username, password, or any other sensitive info, but please include enough info to let us know if it's pserver, the repository name/location, etc)

3. If you go to "Window, Open Perspective", do you have a "CVS Repository Exploring" perspective? Can you open it?

4. Do you get a "CVS Repositories" pane, with an "Add CVS Repository" icon?

5. What happens when you try to add your repository?

Thanx in advance .. PSM

1. This problem happens to both Eclipse 3.2 and Eclipse 3.5.1. I encounter this problem after I upgrade my debian from stable to testing.

2. Previously I used extssh to cvs to my server and it worked fine. Now it doesn't any more.

3. Yes, I have the perspective.

4. Yes, I have the button.

5. It hangs there if the "validate connection" option is ticked.

The problem is that whenever I use "commit" or "update" within eclipse, the cvs reports that the network is unreachable. However I can do cvs update and commit in terminal.

Hi -

Look here for some additional troubleshooting tips:

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/wcmid/...ntegration.pdf

In particular:
Quote:
Problem: Any action involving versioning appears to “hang” and run indefinitely.

Solution:
Open the \eclipse\plugins\com.ibm.wcm.cvs.authenticator\plugin.properties file and make sure that the username and password for the CVS repository that you are trying to access is correct. Try connecting via the command line to CVS to verify. Ensure that there are no extra spaces on the last line of the file.
<= In this case, I'd look in .metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.team.cvs.ui, under your Workspace

Hi,

Thanks for your reply but unfortunately that doesn't seem to solve my problem. Then error message I got when I commit/update is:

Could not connect to :extssh:hongyang@bleong.ndslab.net:/var/cvsroot: CVS communication error: org.eclipse.team.internal.ccvs.ssh2.CVSSSH2ServerConnection$SSH2IOException: Network is unreachable
Network is unreachable

Hi -

Ah: "extssh" might be the bad guy here. Look at this link:

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infoce...lineclient.htm

And this one:

http://help.eclipse.org/help32/index...s-cvs-ssh2.htm

If neither one works, please give more details about:

a) what is your successful command-line "cvs login" syntax (and/or "what is your $CVSROOT?")

b) how is the remote CVS server configured (ext? pserver?)

Hi,

I think you're right :-)

I changed the method from "extssh" to "ext", which now will trigger OpenSSH. Everything works fine now.
