When working behind a restrictive firewall, which limits ssh connections you may be running into some of the following errors:
git clone email@example.com:morganp/maruku_snippet.git Cloning into maruku_snippet... ssh: connect to host github.com port 22: Connection refused fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
Bad Owner, Using .ssh/config
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:morganp/maruku_snippet.git Cloning into maruku_snippet... Bad owner or permissions on /users/mprior/.ssh/config fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
Not a Repository
$ git pull https://email@example.com/morganp/maruku_snippet.git fatal: Not a git repository (or any parent up to mount parent /users) Stopping at filesystem boundary (GIT_DISCOVERY_ACROSS_FILESYSTEM not set).
$ git clone https://firstname.lastname@example.org/morganp/maruku_snippet.git Cloning into maruku_snippet... error: RPC failed; result=22, HTTP code = 405 fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
Getting it Working
Last time I ran into these issues I found I could clone as guest, changed email@example.com to just github.com. Pushing will then prompt for your github Username and password. Once cloned you can manually update the config file so you do not have to enter your username. Entering your password will still be required.
$ git clone https://github.com/morganp/maruku_snippet.git Cloning into maruku_snippet... remote: Counting objects: 52, done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (38/38), done. remote: Total 52 (delta 15), reused 43 (delta 10) Unpacking objects: 100% (52/52), done.
Modify .git/config back to :
url = https://firstname.lastname@example.org/morganp/maruku_snippet.git
git push will prompt for password via dialog box.
