Connecting Fisheye to Existing Git Repository


I'm getting the following error when I try to connect FishEye to my exiting Git repository.

I am trying to connect using the server's IP address as opposed to the URL like the example show. I don't want to create a dns entry solely for this purpose.

Error testing connection.
Error talking to repository:

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.

Thanks for your help.

Hi SMcBride,

This could be a configuration issue, or it could be an bug in Fisheye. You should be able to connect via direct IP.

Double-check the IP address - if you keep getting this error, you should go through our support team to get it resolved.

Let us know the resolution here if you go this route.

If you turn on debug logging and rerun your connection test, FishEye will log the git commands it is using to talk to your git repository.

You can then run those same commands on your command line to see if they work from the command line which should help you to further diagnose problems.

FishEye uses a git ls-remote command to test its access to the remote repository.
