Is it possible to have an ssh base url with a subdirectory?

Our Bitbucket base url is  The ssh base url defaults to ssh://  When I try to change it to to ssh:// I get the error "You must enter a URL of the form ssh://hostname or ssh://hostname:port"

Hi Justice,

Bitbucket runs a SSH server as part of the application. Therefore, the server will be listening on port 7999 (i.e. if you run a "netstat" you will see that port on listen).

Hence it doesn't make sense to include a path after the hostname.

I hope that makes sense.
