NetBeans 6.9 Install with Subversion for ssh+svn

I thought that NetBeans included everything needed to use ssh+svn but it doesn't.

SSH Install Notes
So in order to get SVN to work over SSH you will have to download "plink.exe" from the following site:
(plink is also included with TortoiseSVN as well)

The plink needs to be available in your Environmental Path in order to run from the command line. In order to do this you will need to either:
(hard) add the location of "plink.exe" in your Environmental Path or
(easy) save the file to your %WINDIR%. (usually "C:\Windows\")

After it is in your Environmental Path you can run the following from a command line. ("Start" -> "Run..." -> "cmd" + "OK")

You will be prompted with a "Host Key warning" that you will need to accept by pressing "y" and "enter".

The server's host key is not cached in the registry. You
have no guarantee that the server is the computer you
think it is.
The server's rsa2 key fingerprint is:
ssh-rsa 2048 79:41:a7:99:89:5e:4f:91:c4:15:74:42:34:b5:80:20
If you trust this host, enter "y" to add the key to
PuTTY's cache and carry on connecting.
If you want to carry on connecting just once, without
adding the key to the cache, enter "n".
If you do not trust this host, press Return to abandon the
Store key in cache? (y/n)

You can now exit and close that command prompt window. (to exit press Ctrl + C)

NetBeans Install Notes
Download and install NetBeans 6.9 from

I downloaded just the PHP version (31MB)

Run the download with all the defaults (you can choose to register and help improve if you want)

After install select "Team" -> "Subversion" -> "Checkout".

You will be prompted with this Subversion Screen Shot: (if you run a 64-bit version you will have to download and install separately)

After install you will have to restart NetBeans.

After restart select "Team" -> "Subversion" -> "Checkout" again.

Substitute your username and password for "username" and "password"
