Fisheye/Crucible git error [closed]

Hi everyone:

I am faced in front of a weird problem. The problem is that one of my git remote repository is connected but, it could not clone it. Can you please what is happening, here is the error

Unable to clone remote repository: <Git Repository>- [error: couldn't connect to host while accessing http://subtest1:XXXX@<server>/git/<repo>/info/refs?service=git-upload-pack, fatal: HTTP request failed] - Cloning into bare repository 'clone'...

What happened was that it was a server disconfiguration.

So I closed

Hi Darly,

Can you try to ping and telnet the Git server from the server where FishEye is installed?

What happens if you try to clone http://subtest1:XXXX@<server>/git/<repo>/info/refs from command line, on the server where FishEye is installed? Does it work?

Felipe: as now, I can ping telnet the to the remote server. However while doing the commit, there is no ping. Let me show you: In command line

git clone http://subtest1:XXXX@<server>/git/<repo>t/info/refs

Cloning into 'refs'...

error: couldn't connect to host while accessing http://subtest1:XXXX@<server>/git/<repo>/info/refs/info/refs?service=git-upload-pack

fatal: HTTP request failed.

Also, the repositories were mapped as http.

Hi Felipe:

Hope that I deleted the information that I provided you before.

In terms of fisheye, yes I can ping and telnet it. However, I cannot make git clone.

Same here. the Fecru git user doesn't have {{POST git-upload-pack}} rights. That's caused by some git "servers" that restrict "POST" in general for "read-only" mode which is not correct as you can refer to git-upload-pack man page, it's part of the fetch.

If applicable, use SSH connection and authentication.

Else: don't know, give your fecru user "writable" access... still he will not do anything harmful ... I hope
