My scenario is the following - I'm testing SourceTree for Windows. I'm trying to add a git repository through SSH that is secured with Gerrit.
I have configured the correct keys using Pageant and tested them with the console - it works there.
However when I try to pull to update the local repository with SourceTree I can't get it working. First everytime I try this SourceTree says it doesn't know the server's key and if I want to store it - everytime I say Yes, yet the key is never stored. Besides the key is already in my known_hosts file in my user's home directory but apparently SourceTree doesn't look there.
Then I retry and get this error:
fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.
Any ideas how I can connect to the Gerrit managed repos?
The problem with "Unable to authenticate [preauth]" is probably because terminal is using ssh and its configuration/keys, and SourceTree is using putty/plink. I had the same situation, and I solved the problem by converting openssh key to PuTTY format, starting plink manually, and loading the key. After that everything went smoothly. In my opinion SourceTree lacks transparency in that department.
As I said I tested the keys with the console(terminal) and it is working there. TortoiseGit and Egit are also working just fine with those keys.
It seems only SourceTree for Windows can't find them. I have correctly configured them in Pageant.
I'm trying to find out here how it is supposed to work and if it doesn't then I'll open a bug - that is expected because this version of source tree is still in beta.
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
