SourceForge Git auto-login in Windows 7

TortoiseGit auto log-in at SourceForge can be achieved through key authentication through Putty.

  1. The first step is to create a key set go to the putty section from the link below
    1.  https://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sourceforge/wiki/SSH%20keys
  2. Now associate the public SSH key with your SourceForge account
    1. https://sourceforge.net/account/ssh
  3. Finally you need to configure Putty to know about your private key such that plink.exe can use it when authentication is done.
    1. Open putty and load the default settings from the “Session” tab
    2.  Navigate to “Connection->SSH->Auth”
    3. Specify the path to your private key in “Private key file for authentication:”
    4. Go back to the “Session” tab and save the changes to “Default Sessions”
  4. Now you are done.
