Hi Doug or anyone else,

Do you know of any distributions that work with KfW that have a version
of plink that doesn't always open a Windows console window? I know that
Quest (formerly Vintella?) has a version that does this, but it only
supports SSPI.

I want to be able to use svn+ssh from within Eclipse, on a machine that
is not in a Windows domain, without having the system flash open a large
number of console windows while I am either checking file out or in.

The Quest distribution of Putty works well for this purpose when I am
using a machine that is in a Windows domain.
