I have been using SmartGit locally for sometime now. Now I want to integrate GitLab with SmartGit as GitLab is an opensource and provides free usage even for greater number of Developers.

I Tried to use ssh, http and even local gitLabs's repository. So far I am not able to do anything.

SSH simply gives error
"Could not connect to repository 'git@'."

Clone Error

Please help me out here. Thanks.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

and don't you make a mistake trying to connect to 127.0.**1.1** when the loopback address actually is 127.0.**0.1**? – zmo May 8 '13 at 10:58
@zmo Not sure about this. GitLab is deployed on my Local System. – Ahmed Durrani May 8 '13 at 10:58
of course, but 1/ your local address IP is wrong, and 2/ I think your question is offtopic on stackoverflow. It's not a coding question, it's about how to deploy an application. – zmo May 8 '13 at 10:59
@zmo Ok I will transfer it to either of the sites. I tried with 127.0.*0.*1 too. Same error. Well THanks for helping. – Ahmed Durrani May 8 '13 at 11:02 is a wrong address, except if you have a lot of loopback interfaces on your computer. So I think you made a typo somewhere trying to connect to whereas you were meaning or localhost

Thanks for answering. But the problem was not about the address, the paraphrase was the problem. I created new SSH Key and tried and it worked fine. – Ahmed Durrani May 9 '13 at 4:19

The Problem was the about the Local Address. The problem was about the SSH-Key paraphrase. I was entering wrong paraphrase. Simply left paraphrase as empty and it worked fine.
