I am connecting to CVS server over SSH using Cygwin, WinCVS and TortoiseCVS
without any problems, but jCVS fails on me.

Since the error I receive is "The host key is invalid or was not accepted", it
appeared to me jCVS wasn't finding my .ssh directory, so I used -Duser.home but
to no avail.

Any tips on what I should try next? TIA.

Which version of jCVS are you using?
Do you know if it is using MindBright or the newer j2ssh?

I am certain that MindBright does not read your .ssh directory, and I am not
sure about j2ssh.

I've got the same problem here. I'm using the latest release, 5.4.1.
"could not create SSH connection for xxx -> the host key is invalid or was not
accepted!"

First time trying to use this program though, so i might be doing something
wrong. I looked briefly at the documentation, but didn't find anything useful.
Is there some argument magic etc I should know?

Maybe i'll try later at home with my mac.

Ok. Second report must mean that there is something suspicious.

I recently changed the SSH package from MindBright to j2ssh. My few tests seemed
to work ok for me, but clearly there are cases that do not.

The first thing I need to do is check for a more recent release.

In the meantime, we need to accumulate more details about the problems you are
seeing.

Is it posssible that either of you could post the details of the CVS server you
are connecting to? I would like to try to reproduce the problem here so that I
may debug it directly.

Ok. I have found the bug.
I was not properly setting the host authentication processor.
I will try to release an update in the next week to fix it.
Thanks for the bug report!

How did you set this? What should I do to overcome this? I'm having troubles
connecting through SSH.

Thanks in advance.

There is no way for you, as a user, to set this.
I will need to fix the code and issue a new release.
