SourceTreeForMac keeps asking me for github authentication

Just downloaded the version 2.4.1 and It fails every time to authenticate to the github server. All the info is correct, I'm using two-factor-authentication and both SSH and HTTPS protocol fail. Is it a bug?

Steps taken:

Top bar>SourceTree>Preferences>Accounts>Add...

Host:GitHub

Auth type: OAuth

Login through Connect Account (Successfully)

Protocol: HTTPS

OK.

For the first try I get "The request timed out."

For subsequent tries I get "Could not authorize request with the available token. Please re-authenticate."

I'm sorry but your work around just does not work. The token has received all permissions. In Visual Studio, the token also works.

 

SourceTree Version 2.4.8 for Windows 10 64 Bit

Did u try with basic instead of OAuth and did you find a pop up window asking for authentication?

That worked. Thanks.

Basic authentification is the simple solution...

Could you extend your answer to show exactly the steps you follow, maybe with screenshots?

Sorry for the delay @David Benson [draw.io], here it is

Damn, I couldn't find that anywhere, it worked. The documentation is misleading though. It says "For versions earlier than SourceTree 2.4 for Mac and SourceTree 1.10 for Windows." but my version is 2.4.1 and I needed this workaround. Make it an answer please

Sourcetree is a disaster.
