I used to have a working Git installation on Windows, but for some reason, it's not working anymore, and I don't know what to do to fix it.
If I were to follow GitHub's setup tutorial, it says that all I'd need to do to verify things are copasetic is to type
ssh -T firstname.lastname@example.org
and when I do that, things are dandy:
C:\ > ssh -T email@example.com Hi klauern! You've successfully authenticated, but GitHub does not provide shell access.
So I feel confident that I can clone one of my projects locally (such as a fork of a project I have):
C:\ > git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:klauern/ruby.git Cloning into 'ruby'... FATAL ERROR: Network error: Connection timed out fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
I can get through to this using an
https:// protocol behind an HTTP proxy, but I should be able to go through the
ssh protocol, too, right?
I'll add that I am using the windows install of Git from http://git-scm.com/, I have PuTTy and PAgeant installed and working, as well as a
~/.ssh folder with all the keys in it. As I'd mentioned above, this used to work, but now it doesn't, and the only test I know is
