git clone failure: error: RPC failed; result=22, HTTP code = 504

I am trying to clone a repo hosted on BigBucket to my BeagleBone Black derivative, currently running git v1.7.10.4. 

I consistently get the following error:

> git clone https://<myaccount>@bitbucket,org/<myrepo.git>

> Cloning into <myrepo> ...

> Password for https://<myaccount>

error: RPC failed; result=22, HTTP code = 504
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

What would cause this error? Is this a compatibility issue with git or perhaps as the result of some configuration limitation?

This was because I was still using https to access my repo, once I switched my repo to support SSH, everything was good. I am now using SSH to access my repo from my developer account (Visual Studio/Windows) and my embedded device (Linux), and I am able to clone and pull code without issues.

it's work to my problem.

Hi Even i am getting that error now could you please tel me how to switched repo to support SSH

The main thing is the remote URL. it should start with "ssh://" instead of "https://". Depending on the host, other parts of the URL might change, too.

Do you have some sort of proxy server that could be timing out?

According to the HTTP specification, 504 is returned when "The server was acting as a gateway or proxy and did not receive a timely response from the upstream server." In general, 504 is caused due to slow network. 

As workaround, try to setup your ~/.ssh/config with the following:

Host *

    ServerAliveInterval 120

To get more details about the error, set GIT_CURL_VERBOSE=1
