First Install: Can't get to remote repository

Michael Barber November 28, 2022

I just installed SourceTree and I'm trying to get to our Local Bitbucket server add my code to a repository I created.  I can't seem to log in.


1. First thing I notice is that it want's to authenticate via https or SSH.  The URL for the bitbucket server is HTTP and not HTTPS.

Authentication failed

Only 'http' and 'https' schemes are allowed.

2.  For the protocol I have tried https and ssh and neither is working with Basic auth.

Authentication failed

No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it: 127.***:443


I am not sure what I need to ask for.  First if the bitbucket server is only HTTP, is it always going to 443 even with SSH which is port 22?  That is confusing.   Anybody know what I need to make this work?


Do I need to install the GCM even for sourcetree?

Ok, I played with enough settings and eventually got it to work.  I didn't do anything special that I can remember that I wasn't already doing so I'm not sure what the answer was but I'm in.
