Problems cloning GIT repository to SourceTree

Hi, I am cloning from a remote location to try to test your utility to see if it is something the dev team will find useful for workflow implementation.

i keep getting this error when i try to clone a repository:

abort: error: Operation timed out
error: Failed connect to dev-referencestor.com:443; Operation timed out while accessing https://username:password@dev-referencestor.com/data/www/dev-referencestor.com/Rs_2011Q1_Ui/.git/info/refs<br< a=""> />
fatal: HTTP request failed

*note in my copy i DO have my username/password in the command, and its the same one that successfully allows me ssh terminal access to the repository.

So I am stuck!!! And the software does not come with clear instructions or a readme pdf.

Can anyone help me connect to the online repo?

Thanks

That doesn't look like a valid URL to me, the path goes right up to directories inside the .git repo which is not normal. Really you shouldn't include your password in the URL either, that's a security risk.

Extrapolating from your URL above it looks like it should be something like https://username@dev-referencestor.com/data/www/dev-referencestor.com/Rs_2011Q1_Ui - but please check that with your provider.

SourceTree will prompt you for your password and allow you to save it in your keychain for future use, this is far more secure than including it in the URL (and just as convenient).
