Git LFS not working on Windows 10 (when it used to)



Git LFS is something that has worked in the past for me but no longer does.  Normally I work on a Mac so I'm not able to determine when exactly it stopped.

I've tried uninstalling everything git related and going through all the installaltion instructions but to no avail.  When push an LFS file it just times out and shows the error (see below).

I am using LFS extensively on most of my repos, ans successfully from my Mac.

The test repo works fine when I uninstall LFS

Pulling LFS files from existing files just doesn't fail, but doesn't pull the file correctly.

In the past I have used other git clients. 

I am at a loss.  

As of 27/11/17 I'm running the latest version of everything I can think of updating!


git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c lfs.customtransfer.bitbucket-media-api.path=git-lfs-bitbucket-media-api push -v --tags Test master:master
Pushing to

Git LFS: (0 of 1 files) 0 B / 48.00 KB
LFS: Put dial tcp connectex: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.
error: failed to push some refs to ''
Completed with errors, see above.

Addendum to my issue:

I've just tested the repo (with LFS) now with GitHub and it's working so it's something specific to BiBucket.

Hi , am also getting same issue any idea how to resolve it

I am using Bitbucket for Git LFS

Hi Manisha - as I mentioned above - it just started working again(after not working), so I believe in my case the issue was with Bitbucket.  

I'm not currently working on a Windows machine so I'm not in a position to speak further on this.
