I am trying to use SourceTree with git repo hosted with WEBFACTION hosting provider. Repository is created and exists but trying to clone it to a local folder in Windows 8 per instructions
https://docs.webfaction.com/software/git.html
produces error bellow. Is it possible to use SourceTree with Webfaction? Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

There is no reason you shouldn't be able to use SourceTree with Webfaction. SourceTree runs commands using your git command line client to interface with any remote, so the only requirement for SourceTree to work with Webfaction is for Webfaction to support Git (clearly it does, from the docs).

You might try the answer to this question to see if SourceTree has cached an incorrect password (would explain the access denied error).

You might also open up SourceTree's terminal and make an attempt to SSH to username.webfactional.comto see if there is a security certificate that needs accepted.

If that works, try cloning via that command line. If you are still having a problem, then it isn't in SourceTree, but more likely a configuration problem with your Webfaction repo.
