not able to clone branches fro bit bucket ...asking password Edited

1. I generated pub,private keys using  command : ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 

on my unix server

2. Then copied the contents of .pub file to butbucket ssh-keys section

3. Then tried to clone the repository on this unix server by issueing below commands

      eval `ssh-agent`

      ssh-add  id_rsa

   Identity added: id_rsa

git clone's password: 


But it is asking for password?

The unix server username is different from my bit bucket user name.As Unix user is a common user(ec2-user)  which is used by all users.While bit bucket user is individual for each user.Can it be a issue.

Please let me know what am I missing.

I'm going to assume based on your question here that you're using Bitbucket Server. Do you have port forwarding enabled? Is there a specific port that Bitbucket SSH is listening on other than the SSH-default port 22?
