    Does this allow you to have different login/passwords for different projects?

  2. I never tried it. Now I work on Debian and not sure if it is possible or not.

    Constant Tortoise logins were driving me nuts and wasting time.

    @fox It looks like this
    “C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\TortoisePlink.exe” -l myusername -pw mypassword

    confirm it works as desired. It affects only the one working copy, if you follow instruction a) right click on that local repo’s directory first.
