Warning: untrusted X11 forwarding setup failed: xauth key data not generated

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Troubleshoot SSH Issues

I get this error when trying to connect to my remote BB repository.

git push --set-upstream origin working 

Warning: untrusted X11 forwarding setup failed: xauth key data not generated
Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding.
X11 forwarding request failed on channel 0
conq: repository access denied.
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

 

Running on OSX and using bash.

Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

Sounds like you have x11 forwarding configured for every ssh session.  You can either add a Host match to your .ssh/ssh_config to disable x11 for the Bitbucket host or use "http" repository links instead of "ssh" when cloning.  You can use git set-remote to updated existing repositories to use "http", if you choose that route.

Thanks - 

added:

Host bitbucket.org

    ForwardX11 no

 

to my ~/.ssh/config
