I used to have a boss who was particularly fond of the ‘quick hack’. So much so that many of us used to cough “Hack It!” whenever he was around. We found this endlessly amusing. This segment is dedicated to him.
TortoiseSVN is really great. Best source control client ever. However, the svn+ssh protocol doesn’t support a non-standard SSH port. e.g. svn+ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org:9022/. That’s a bummer, since my employer just changed the SSH port.
In order to Hack It! (TM), just go to TortoiseSVN->Settings->Network and set the SSH client to
C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\TortoisePlink.exe -P 9022
This is a hack because if you have other repositories they will also start connecting to this funky port. Non-hack suggestions welcome.
