I have set up SourceTree to use SSH but it does not appear to be working.
Whenever I try to do a fetch from our remote repository, I get prompted for a username and password.
When I enter the correct username and password, this is what I get (in the space marked XXXX, SourceTree puts my ACTUAL PASSWORD):
git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false fetch --prune origin
FATAL ERROR: Server sent disconnect message
type 2 (protocol error):
"Too many authentication failures for XXXXXXXX"
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
Completed with errors, see above.
So not only does the SSH auth not work, I can't even use username/password auth. Does anybody have any ideas?
This is very unusual behaviour. The error you're seeing which is showing your password is output from Git itself. Could you tell me more about your SSH setup? You've set up your id_rsa and id_rsa.pub keys in ~/.ssh/ and the URL for that repository has an SSH URL format? It looks like to me it's prompting for auth because it can't find any which could mean a number of things.
With further information we'll gladly be able to help.
