I've setup Gerrit on Ubuntu Server 14.04. Everything seems to be running correctly and I have users using LDAP to authenticate to the web interface and we've been pulling and pushing commits. I'm not using a reverse proxy in Apache to get to port 8080 but just created a redirect in iptables from 80 to 8080 (probably not the best but since I was having config issues with Apache after setting up phpmyadmin it was what I got to work).
I, along with a good number of my developers, have no problem with using the SSH protocol to fetch/pull and push to the remote. However, there are some holdouts who can't quite grasp the whole process of PuTTY, SSH, and Git from a Windows client. Since they're hung up on this aspect and their major complaint is around lack of SSH support from libgit2 in Visual Studio I wanted to give them the ability to use HTTP instead.
For the life of me I cannot figure out why we cannot connect over HTTP. I've tried the following URIs:
- Probably other combinations...
I get an error about not being about to read refs/info (or something like that).
Ideally I would like to have the users be able to use their network auth (ActiveDirectory or NTLM, whatever works), but I could be just as fine as having them use a generated password.
Do I need to setup Apache as a reverse proxy to get this to work? That was my thought. Basically have Apache perform some kind of authentication (LDAP or NTLM, this'll be another question)? Can I setup Apache to do NTLM auth and pass that through on a reverse proxy setup?
I can't seem to find any information except that it is possible to have HTTP for push and pull.
