You can download Eclipse at http://www.eclipse.org.
This section will show you how to manage your ssh connection
with Eclipse by using an existing key or by creating a new
First, go to the Window/Preferences menu.
Here, browse the preferences tree : General/Network
Here, you can specify an already existing SSH2 key (must

With your mouse, select the content of the box labeled Public
key for pasting into OpenSSH authorized_keys file, copy it

Click on the Save private key button to
save your private key in a file.
Update your gforge account
Paste your public key in the gforge website. To do this,
you need to go to your account and then go to the Account

this problem, either create your own project first or request
the project admin of the project you want to join to add you
to the list of the project's contributors.
Please, be aware that uploading your ssh public key on the
server will not allow you to connect to the server immediately
through ssh. To do so, you will need to wait at most 24h.
If your connection is impossible 24h later, please, contact
the server administrators.
