Hi Aaron! The article Git clone fails offers some tips for the part regarding the error "curl 56". Can you provide us more information so we can help you troubleshoot this issue?:

  • Are you also getting this error when pulling / pushing?
  • Do you get this error if you try cloning from the terminal?
  • Did you update / changes something recently?

Best regards,
