OS – Windows 7 professional 64 bit
GIT for windows – Git-1.9.0 – Using Git bash
I started having problems with “git fetch” suddenly out of nowhere.
Sometimes git.exe would error out and sometimes the “git fetch” would just hang.
So I decided to start everything from scratch.
I uninstalled git for windows and reinstalled it (accepting all defaults), restarted the machine. Created a brand new folder and did the following
$ git clone [email protected]:[email protected]/myproject.git Cloning into 'myproject'... Enter passphrase for key '/c/Users/myid/.ssh/id_rsa': remote: Counting objects: 287209, done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (86467/86467), done. remote: Total 287209 (delta 188451), reused 287209 (delta 188451) Receiving objects: 100% (287209/287209), 168.89 MiB | 328.00 KiB/s, done. Resolving deltas: 100% (188451/188451), done. Checking connectivity...
It consistently just hangs at “checking connectivity”
I have scanned the machine for viruses/trojans what have you and no threats were found.
This is happening both at work location and from home – So its probably not the internet.
I’m not sure how to proceed or what to try next.
I removed the
known_hosts file from my
~/.ssh folder, which did the trick. Everything works now.
