I've got an Oracle VM VirtualBox running Ubuntu 9.10, and also a pysical DELL server running Ubuntu 9.10
I can use putty to connect to both the VM and the DELL. From either I can ssh into the other, albeit using an IP address.
Then on both machines, I've got a git repo set up: VM as a clone of DELL - I managed to successfully use git clone firstname.lastname@example.org.X:/path/to/repo/on/DELL
So VM has DELL as a remote repo called origin, and DELL has VM as a remote repo called siteVM
I've made some changes in the VM, and commited them.
But if I try to do a fetch from the DELL repo, I get the following:
git fetch siteVM ssh: connect to host 192.169.1.X port 22: Connection timed out fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
So I'm lost. SSH is working fine, and I cloned the DELL repo onto the VM without any problems at all.
What's stopping SSH working via git fetch?
UPDATE: Completely and utterly my own stupid fault. I've put the IP in wrong in my git remote add command - I've put 169 instead of 168.
