sorry if this question seems so easy but I'm new with UBUNTU and I still couldn't figure that out.
I've been given a private key with password to clone and install a software from a repository using git (
git clone ssh://gitolite3@git.[Rest]...) but unfortunately every time I try to have access to that folder it gives me "permission denied" (this is a experimental software for an academic project) , I'm over SSH and I've also put the private key in .ssh folder but I still get this message.
can you please help me and explain me a little bit about how does git works with this private key and what should I do to solve this problem and clone it successfully?
Thank you so much in advance
