Hi Vamsi,

Have you checked your firewall?

Please also check this.

If you use firewall this may be blocking your access when using the port 22.

You can check using the following command:

telnet 22

Hey Vamsi,


This command is intended to be run in your terminal. You don`t need to necessary run it in your git directory.

This output means that you do not have the "telnet" installed.


Have you checked if there is a firewall in your network/computer?

Hi Lucas,

yes i have windows firewall on my system, may be that is the reason i am not able clone while using ssh.

if i am using my company network it's not working. i am using my public network it's work fine.

i guess problem with internal network only (it's correct)

Good to know that together we get to the answer of the problem.

Yes Lucas, thanks for the clarrfication.

i thick it is out of the Question :)

to enable port number 22,can u please share any document you already have 



You'd need to talk to your network team to alter your local settings. However, you should be able to get to Bitbucket using SSH on a non-standard port:

`git remote set-url origin ssh://`

Port 443 is normally used for HTTPS, but for that specific hostname (``) it gets routed to our SSH servers.

HI Lucas,

i run telnet 22  i am geeting  error message like this

telnet.PNGCould not open connection to the host, on port 22: Connect failed

Just curious, but who's your ISP? I'm seeing reports that BSNL has blocked all outbound access on port 22, which would explain this sort of error. If that's the case, then you'll need to talk to BSNL - but you can still use or HTTPS to push, pull, and do other things in the meantime.
