Accessing a HostGator SVN repository via SVN+SSH on Windows

Accessing a HostGator SVN repository via SVN+SSH on Windows

This information should be helpful to anyone trying to access an svn repository stored on a remote (shared) server which does not expose an svn server.

My host is HostGator (good speeds, reliable ssh, cgi-only, MyISAM-only, decent support, non-existent knowledgebase). HostGator runs SSH over port 2222 which presents a few problems when trying to use traditional methods to connect to an SVN repository via SSH.

For these steps you will need Putty. Just get the whole suite.
