Error with GIT repository

Dear Support Team,

we have configured a GIT repository couple of months ago and the repository still has not started scanning.
When testing the connection we get the following error message:
"Fisheye is using '/usr/bin/ssh' to authenticate with SSH authenticated repositories.

Error testing connection.
Error talking to repository:

ssh: Could not resolve hostname git-upload-pack: Name or service not known
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

at com.atlassian.fisheye.git.GitScmConfig.testConnection(
at com.cenqua.fisheye.RepositoryConfig.testConnection(
at com.atlassian.fisheye.spi.admin.impl.DefaultRepositoryAdminService.testConnectionFor(
at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method)
at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(

Connection failed."

Could you please explain us the error message?

Thanks in advance,

What URL are you using to talk to you Git? Are you sure that the hostname is correct? Does IP address work?
