Beginning with the SourceTree 3.4.8 (Windows) update, I can no longer push or pull. Everything else seems to work, but I'm having to use the git command line for push/pull. The error message is (personal info replaced with asterisks):
git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false --no-optional-locks push -v origin develop:develop
Pushing to ssh://***
fatal: protocol error: bad line length character: ***
Completed with errors, see above.
Is there a workaround for this until the bug gets fixed?
It seems that the problem is the new Putty version 0.76.
I replaced the integrated putty (just the putty folder - version 0.76) by the one from the previous version 3.4.7 (0.70.2-Sourcetree) and it works as before.
The putty folder is in (C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\SourceTree\app-3.4.8\tools\putty - or your user folder).
Is it possible that the official putty version is missing some fixes done by Atlassian ?
Thx. That solved my problem as well.
To be honest I was running on version 3.4.6 and from one to another day I wasn't able to work with my gitserver via ssh.
Then - as the last hope - I did an update to 3.4.8 - nothing changed.
I was already despaired I searched on the net again and found this entry.
I copied putty from 3.4.6 into 3.4.8 - I didn't expected that it helps - but it did.
From my perspektiv this issue must caused by another reason. My gues was to check the windows updates - but there weren't any updates done in the relevant time frame.
The problem component is plink.exe (part of Putty), bundled with Sourcetree.
Sourcetree 3.4.7 has plink.exe version "0.70.2-sourcetree" compiled specially for the Sourcetree project, but more recent versions have common plink.exe from https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/latest.html.
The workaround is the following:
I hope the Sourcetree team will fix this bug in future releases.
