git over ssh with non-default port

git over ssh with non-default port

We’ve recently changed hosting provider and are having trouble getting git working.

ssh works with authorized_keys so:


$ ssh [email protected] -p NNNNN

works, giving me a shell (albeit a jailshell) and I can see the repos in the right place, owned by the user I am connecting as with read-write permission. git is found in the path.

However, if I try to clone the repo, I get:


$ git clone ssh://[email protected]:NNNNN/path/to/repo.git
Cloning into 'repo'...
ssh: connect to host myhost port NNNNN: Connection timed out
fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

This isn’t a temporary failure: it repeats consistently.
