What if the "verify private key" step doesn't work?

On https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucketserverkb/git-operations-fail-permission-denied-publickey-779171755.html, when I run the final "Resolution" steps, I get errors:

ssh -p 7999 -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa -vT git@localhost
OpenSSH_6.9p1, LibreSSL 2.1.8

debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config

debug1: connect to address 127.0.0.1 port 7999: Connection refused

ssh: connect to host localhost port 7999: Connection refused

 

But then the article doesn't say what to do if it fails like mine. What can I try to do next?

Hello Keenan,

debug1: connect to address ::1 port 7999: Connection refused

Is the port 7999 open?

You can check which ports are LISTEN. Please, refer to http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/how-do-i-find-out-what-ports-are-listeningopen-on-my-linuxfreebsd-server/ for further information.

Kind regards,

Hey Rafael,

Looks like port 7999 isn't open. I was just using that because it was in the instructions on that page. What else could I try?

Hi Keenan,

SSH comes disabled by default with Bitbucket server. The steps to enable it are described here:

Also make sure that this port is open on the firewall or IPTables rules.

Hey Thiago... I got to this page trying to troubleshoot issues pulling from my Bitbucket repository to a specific external hosting server.

It works to another server I tried, but not the one I need.

I didn't realize I was looking at a support article for a different Atlassian product...
