Cannot interact with repo with SSH, only HTTP

I have ssh enabled, a key added, and ssh'ing to the server works perfectly fine.

Whenever I try to pull/push with ssh, I get this error:

fatal: '/ad/isc-admissions.git' does not appear to be a git repository
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

I know that the repo does exist and I have access to it. I am, however, able to push/pull via http and my password.

What am I doing wrong?

The problem was that my SSH settings in Bitbucket matched the SSH port for the server. Bitbucket manages its SSH separately.

Changing the port setting resolved the issue.

What do you have set for pushing?

git remote -v

Or alternatively which commands are you using when performing the actions via http vs ssh

$ git remote -v
bitbucket ssh://git@server.com:10022/ad/isc-admissions.git (fetch)
bitbucket ssh://git@server.com:10022/ad/isc-admissions.git (push)

We ssh through 10022. 

Same commands when using http or ssh.

$ git fetch bitbucket master
fatal: '/ad/isc-admissions.git' does not appear to be a git repository
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

When I remove that remote and add the http url, it works fine after I authenticate with my password.

The url for http has a different path and user compared to ssh.

http://grant@server.com:7990/scm/ad/isc-admissions.git
ssh://git@server.com:10022/ad/isc-admissions.git

I've added the git user's ssh key to the repo with the same results. My key is added to the git user's as well. I can ssh into the server as git no problem.
