Is it possible to clone a repository onto an external server via SSH?

I'd like to use a development server instead of cloning all the files in a repo to my local machine. Is it possible to do this with sourcetree? I've tried cloning repository setting ssh://username@server.com as the destination path. Error message is 'Repository removed or deleted'

I can clone the repository to my devel server via terminal commands, but would really like to use the sourcetree GUI.

No, neither git nor hg allow the destination of the clone to be a remote. The only way is to ssh into the server and perform the git/hg commands there.
