How can I connect to a local Azure DevOps Git Repository?


This was working with an earlier version of VisualSourceSafe and Sourcetree.  Now it's not. Sigh ...

I have a local Azure DevOps GIT repository that I want to push to.  I set up a Personal Access Token and I'm trying to set up the hosting account in SourceTree.

Hosting Service is Azure DevOps. 

I enter in the host URL which is http (not https) to our local Azure DevOps server.

Preferred Protocol has only HTTPS and SSH as an option, so I choose HTTPS.

For Credentials my only option is Personal Access Token.  I click Refresh Personal Access Token and enter my login ID.  For the password I plug in my Token.

It is not even authenticating.  It says:

"Filed to check login for user [<username>]
Basic authentication requires a secure connection to the server." 

Well, our Azure installation is http, not https.  So I'm out of ideas at this point.  What am I doing wrong?

Any insights would be much appreciated.
