Git Question

Tortoisegit asking password

I just started to work on Git. I use windows 7 and has installed msysgit(1.7.8) and Tortoisegit(1.7.6).
The repository is created on Linux server which is accessible thru LAN. The issue I'm facing is I'm not able to clone the repository using Tortoisegit, it asks for password and I'm not sure what password it is asking.
At the same time I could clone the repository using Git Gui and do all operations.
Can anybody please help me on understanding why Tortoisegit is asking password when Git Gui doesn't.
I tried uninstalling Git and Tortoisegit and then install again but no success.

My colleague solved the problem. Steps:

  1. Right click -> TortoiseGit -> Settings -> Network
  2. SSH client was pointing to C:\Program Files\TortoiseGit\bin\TortoisePlink.exe
  3. Changed path to C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\ssh.exe
