I had to switch from Ubuntu so that I could use Adobe Suite at full speed and now I'm finding that SSH on windows is not as unified as on linux.
I am trying to add a remote on my git project now to a server on a non-standard port by using a /.ssh/config file like
Host 255.255.255.255 Port 22222
Then I add the data to my git repo:
git remote add origin firstname.lastname@example.org:~/git/repo
But when I try to push I get an error message.
$ git push origin master FATAL ERROR: Network error: Connection refused fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
So then I tried just using SSH from the git console:
Which prompts me for my private key passphrase (which it doesn't have) and when I fail at that it asks me for my SSH user password (which works).
Since I am going to disable SSH login by password I need git to start using my key correctly.
