I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 and am trying to clone a git repository via ssh. Unfortunately this does not work due to problems with openssh-client.
In the beginning I was unable to connect to the SSH Server. The following debug output was produced:
OpenSSH_6.6.1, OpenSSL 1.0.1f 6 Jan 2014 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 19: Applying options for * debug1: Connecting to test.com [ommitted] port 22. debug1: Connection established. debug1: identity file /home/jan/.ssh/id_rsa type 1 debug1: identity file /home/jan/.ssh/id_rsa-cert type -1 debug1: identity file /home/jan/.ssh/id_dsa type -1 debug1: identity file /home/jan/.ssh/id_dsa-cert type -1 debug1: identity file /home/jan/.ssh/id_ecdsa type -1 debug1: identity file /home/jan/.ssh/id_ecdsa-cert type -1 debug1: identity file /home/jan/.ssh/id_ed25519 type -1 debug1: identity file /home/jan/.ssh/id_ed25519-cert type -1 debug1: Enabling compatibility mode for protocol 2.0 debug1: Local version string SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_6.6.1p1 Ubuntu-2ubuntu2 debug1: Remote protocol version 2.0, remote software version OpenSSH_5.3 debug1: match: OpenSSH_5.3 pat OpenSSH_5* compat 0x0c000000 debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEXINIT sent debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEXINIT received debug1: kex: server->client aes128-ctr hmac-md5 none debug1: kex: client->server aes128-ctr hmac-md5 none debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_REQUEST(1024<3072<8192) sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_GROUP
After having uncommented the Ciphers and the MACs line in /etc/ssh/ssh_config as described in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openssh/+bug/174168. I am able to connect via ssh.
Unfortunately I am still unable to clone the repository via git using ssh:
jan@jan-ThinkPad-T510:~$ GIT_CURL_VERBOSE=1 GIT_TRACE=1 git clone ssh://user@host/path/to/repo trace: built-in: git 'clone' 'ssh://user@host/path/to/repo' Cloning into 'repo'... trace: run_command: 'ssh' 'user@host' 'git-upload-pack '\''/path/to/repo'\'''
Any idea what causes this problem?
