I have successfully setup gitosis on my server thanks to this helpful howto.

Server: CentOS 5
Desktop: Windows 7
Git (on Desktop):
Client: TortoiseGit (with msysgit 1.6.1)

How can I clone a Git repository from my server when my SSH port is non the default (22)?

I believe that the URL ssh:// works, but I get:

'/gitosis-admin.git' does not appear to be a git repository

Thank you.

@Chris Done. Haven't been here for a while. Also, I had only 4 questions ;) – pek Jul 14 '11 at 20:55

How about this:

cd ~/.ssh
echo "Host" > config
echo "Port 3031" >> config
git clone
