Subject Re: Suggestions for publishing to Ivy repo from Hudson using ssh
Date Wed, 16 Jun 2010 22:28:14 GMT
Hi Rich,

Have you considered ssh key authentication?  Either with an unencrypted
private key (not so secure) or with an ssh-agent holding the unencrypted key
(more secure but the agent has to be restarted on server boot)?
