Permission denied (publickey) fatal: Could not read from remote repository. while cloning Git repository

I am unable to clone a Git repository, and getting this error:

krishna.soni@KRISHNACHANDRAS /c/Projects $ git clone http://stage.abc.com:10088/pqr
http://<url>/<repository> Cloning into '<repository>'... fatal: could not read Username for 'http://<url>': No such file or directory


I've read Bitbucket, Windows and “fatal: could not read Password for”, but still have the problem.

I proceeded further but am now getting this error

sh.exe": chown: command not found

krishna.soni@KRISHNACHANDRAS /c
$ git clone ssh://krishna.sonipayu.in@stage.payupaisa.
/projects
Cloning into 'C:/projects'...
Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

Answer

It looks like a permissions issue - not a Windows 7 issue.

Your ssh key is not authorised - Permission denied (publickey).

You need to create a public ssh key and ask the administrator of the Git repository to add the ssh public key
