I'm trying to configure mercurial for use on a remote machine that has sshd running on an alternate port, and for which my login requires a particular key, which uses a passphrase. ssh is configured and working fine, as with:
ssh -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa-xyz -p 1234 email@example.com
My issue is what goes into the hgrc files to make this work with either of an alias (
barney-stuff) or the default-push property:
hg push barney-alias hg push
Most of the ssh documentation I've seen for Mercurial presumes the default port and a pre-loaded key.
I tried adding this to the repository's hgrc file:
ssh = /usr/bin/ssh -i /home/me/.ssh/id_rsa-xyz -p 1234 default = ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org//hgroot/project1
But an hg push just hangs.
