How to use SecureCRT with TortoiseGIT

I've been trying to use the TortoiseGIT tool in conjunction with secureCRT to pull repos off of our git server. I'm trying to use this rather than the built in ssh.exe since all my keys, configs, etc are in SecureCRT and not in all the ~/.ssh/config files used by TortoiseGIT.

Trying to set the SSH agent (TortoiseGIT -> Settings -> Network -> SSH Client) to the C:\Program Files\VanDyke Software\Clients\SecureCRT.exe

Once set, my general options have my correct ID set. When trying to use TortoiseGIT, it does correctly ask me for my key password, however I get the following error using SecureCRT:

git-upload-pack'/ccp/isec/demo' [window title]
Hostname lookup failed: host not found

Note that I don't get this particular problem with the built in ssh.exe client of TortoiseGIT.

It looks like the "execution" line looks like the following:

C:\Program Files\VanDyke Software\Clients\SecureCRT.exe -x git@git.rd.internal.com "git-upload-pack '/ccp/isec/demo'"

Hi Marcos,

The reason you get that behavior is that SecureCRT is not a command-line application that can handle acting as a go-between in SVN like you want it to.

I have added this thread to a feature request in our product enhancement database to allow SecureCRT to work with SVN clients. Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, send an email to support@vandyke.com and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #12264" in the subject line or use this form from the support page of our website.

Yes, that would be nice. I resorted to creating an extra key pair for the builtin ssh.exe of TortoiseGit and added that public key on my git server.

The request is for Git, not Subversion (SVN). But TortoiseGit is based on TortoiseSvn, so maybe there's not much difference.
