Clone on Windows: Could not resolve hostname
If you clone a project using SSH, Windows may answer:
ssh: Could not resolve hostname forge:etsi.org:_username_: Name or service not known.
How to fix:
- Check that there are not mispellings in the URL
- Try adding a
/after the colon, i.e:
- Try using HTTPS instead of SSH
"Authentication Failed" when pushing on master
If you receive a "Authentication error" while pushing your changes to the master branch, you most probably have a role "Developer" in the project, which does not allow you to push onto the master branch.
You will want to push to another branch (an existing one or a newly created), by issuing the following git command (or similar operation using a visual tool):
git push origin <local-branch>:<remote-branch>
For example, if you developed a new feature you would like to contribute in a new branch called "new-feature", you will want to issue the command:
git push origin new-feature:new-feature
