Can't connect with gitolite repository

I'm not able to connect to my gitolite repository. I do get a working ssh connection, but then it gives the following error in the logs: TransportException: No such file or directory

So it seems it's not able to find the repository, even though I'm sure the path is correct. When I do a clone locally with the same ssh key and path as I fill in the Jira repository settings I can clone it just fine.

As reference, the url is like this (scrambled it a bit):

this port is not supported by plugin (and erroneously treated as part of scp path). Could you use regular ssh protocol?

Hi. I am also experiencing the same thing. Does it mean that you cannot use sourcetree if you have a non standard port?

Seems I was wrong in my previous answer. JGit should support access to 9418 port. What kind of error do you have?

The error is fatal: '/gitolite-admin does not appear to be a git repository.

If I run the same command on my local machine for eg git clone ssh:// then it works.

How do you adding configuration entry for your repository?

I don't understand the question.

I have installed gitolite. I use the automatically created gitolite-admin repository to manage my repositories. I can clone this from my local server but it seems I cannot access this server using the same url when I use sourcetree.

Ah I'm sorry I thought you are asking about Git Integration Plugin for Jira. Can't say anything about Atlassian Source Tree. Sorry for confusion again
