Could not read from remote repository


Hello I followed this exactly -> "Setting Up SSH in Windows"

All steps checked out and even got success via -> ssh -T

so after: 

git remote add origin


I try: 

git push origin master



fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

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

You've added the public key to the repository as an access key. You need to remove it from the repo and add it to your account.

Thank you for your response, that worked perfectly!

Fantastic! Thank you very much!

Thanks Jim, it was very helpful for me too. :)

Thanks, you are so good.

Thanks a lot, it worked for me

Go to and add your key there.

Thanks! It works =)
