I need help on SSH and Bitbucket

I've been trying to access a private repository to no avail. I've tried every solution I found online, but I still can't connect.

I have this problem. Every time I ssh-add.

This is my ssh -vT

I'd appreciate any help. I've been having this problem for days now.

The key worked fine here, but you don't need to specify your Bitbucket username in SSH connection attempts. Instead, use "git" as the username when connecting to a Git repo over SSH, and use "hg" as the username for Mercurial repos.

Yes, that what I was going.

Sorry, the output looked like you'd specified "ssh -vT geekery@bitbucket.org". Either way, though, the key works fine here - otherwise you wouldn't get the "Authentication succeeded (publickey)" message. Are you getting a specific error from Composer?

My SSH key works fine. But I still get "Permission denied (publickey)" or "conq: repository access denied" whenever I clone the private repository. Either I use composer or manually clone it.

If SSH authenticates succesfully with the publickey method, but git does not, that tells me that git must not be using the right public key. I don't think I can help any farther, good luck.

Are you trying to SSH directly to Bitbucket?

@Seth Well, I need to download a private repository via composer.

I don't know anything about compser, but it will need to use git to clone the repository. If it can't/won't do that, you may need to put zip files of the repo in Bitbucket's "downloads" section. Anyway, it looks like Bitbucket is behaving as expected. You might have more luck with the question in a Composer forum.
