Authentication failure on Git (Closed)


#1

Just created a git and when following the command line instructions I keep getting an authentication failure.


#2

Hello,
can you describe in more detail exactly when the authentication error occurs?

How did you generate the SSH key?

Thank you in advance for your support.


#3

I think that was the problem, I hadn’t generated a public key yet.

I’m working on it & think I’m starting to figure it out.

Hello.

we found and fixed an inaccuracy in your user configuration on the git.opendesktop.org host. Please try again with username / password. An ssh key is not necessary, but recommended.
