Cannot fetch, push or pull on Sourcetree for Windows


My team switched to a Enterprise github account. It uses SSH for all repos.

I can no longer fetch, push or pull from SourceTree. When I try to do any of those actions, I get a spinner that never stops, and in the log I see this message:

"git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false --no-optional-locks fetch origin
The server's host key is not cached in the registry. You
have no guarantee that the server is the computer you
think it is.
The server's ecdsa-sha2-nistp256 key fingerprint is:
ecdsa-sha2-nistp256 256 8c:1a:fc:b8:13:67:2b:a7:6e:ce:ed:e7:db:a8:b9:6b
If you trust this host, enter "y" to add the key to"

I can switch branches in ST. I have the correct ssh keys tied to my account in the enterprise github.

I cloned all repos using command line, and can do everything fine in command line.

I have tried:

1. switching from System Git to Embedded Git

2. updating to the latest version of Windows Git

Any other ideas?

The solution was to run plink.exe from the command line, from this post:

I was able to find plink here:


I tried running it with command line parameters, and while the command line returned an error, a modal popup came up asking for my username and password, which when I entered my github username and private key passphrase, everything started working.
