Fisheye Native Git Network Directory

Im trying to add a remote directory to fisheye and have failed so far.  All it ever says is that my directory does not appear to be a git repository.

On my fisheye server I created a symbolic link to the network share where my various folders are that have had a git init.

Local folder created as a symbolic link

E:\GIT_FOLDER

Im somewhat of a beginner with git but I was under the impression that I could now point fisheye to the directory where my .git folder was initialized?  Is the wrong?

I tried

file://E:/GIT_FOLDER/

and various combinations thereof.  No success.  Can someone help with where I might be going wrong?  In the end I was hoping fisheye would let me search the directory something like SourceTree but easier.

You can only use the file:/// protocol if your git repository is hosted as the same environment as your Fisheye repository. Read more about here (https://git-scm.com/book/ch4-1.html). Try using the http/s protocol.

I guess what I was assuming is that creating a symbolic link to the remote folder makes the .git repo folder appear as local to the machine.

Can you connect fisheye to a folder that simply has git initialized on it?

Yes, but it all depends where that git repo is and use the proper protocol base on that.

can the git:// protocol be used for a repo on a remote server?
