I have a server which I can't modify/install anything on that. the only way that server gives me is to use sftp protocol to connect to the server and modify the files. I have access to the server using a key and a user name. these are tested and are working when I use the FileZilla client. Now I want to push to my server using tortoiseGIT or command line, but I can't find any option for using the sftp protocol on tortoiseGit. is it at all possible?

Please more details. What kind of server? Windows, Unix, Linux, ...? –  vonbrand Jan 23 '13 at 18:00

Set the remote URL in TortoiseGit as follows:

ssh://<username>@<server-address>/<repository-folder>

Of course replace <username>, <server-address> and <repository-folder> with their corresponding values.
