I have been facing this annoying error when trying to setup Github on Mac, OS version is Lion. Basically, I followed the steps as mentioned at this URL: http://help.github.com/mac-set-up-git/
I always stuck at the step of executing this command "ssh -T firstname.lastname@example.org"
I have tried to output the debugging message and below is the message log. The last message shows that it's due to an error 'Write failed: Broken pipe'.
Please give me a solution to fix this error if you have ever encountered this error before and able to fix it.
