Bamboo can't get code from linked Stash

Hello, I installed Bamboo, linked it to Stash and created link repository. While linking the repository Bamboo offered me to choose repository and branch from Stash.

When I'm tryint to start my plan which takes code from the repository only I get the following error:

Unable to detect changes 
(com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.RepositoryException : java.lang.RuntimeException: com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.RepositoryException: com.atlassian.bamboo.plugins.git.GitCommandException: command /usr/bin/git ls-remote ssh://aa78191b-fc49-4c83-866f-1e9c53306270@ failed with code 128. Working directory was [.]., stderr: [ssh: connect to host port 52538: Connection timed out, fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly])

How could I solve this?

Have you tried to execute the git clone command from the server itself? There are lots of things to check like firewalls, ports & credentials. Though, its most likely a network issue.

Yes, I have. There is no problem with network at all. I can clone and use the repo from the server.

I'm curious why Bamboo goes to


instead of


Is it some sort of git proxy?

The problem was in wrong setting for iptables on the server. It has been dropping packets to localhost.

Word of explanation: Bamboo is implementing an internal SSH proxy for git in order to authenticate properly with remote repository.
