    Default git can't connect

    Hi,

    I have two computers, first in dual boot on different hard disks, with openSUSE-11.0 (master) and OS-11.1 (slave), the other with WinXP (master) and OS-11.1 (slave). Both computers are connected to the Internet through the same ethernet modem via a hub.

    On both computers I can normally connect to the Internet using Firefox, and manage my e-mails using Thunderbird. But all attempts to manage git result in a time out:
    git.gnome.org[0: 1.0.0.0]: errno=Network is unreachable
    fatal: unable to connect a socket (Network is unreachable)


    Yet ping git.gnome.org works normally and all is OK with OS-11.0.

    I tried connecting each computer alone directly to the modem, without hub: no success.

    This doesn't seem to be a hardware problem but a OS-11.1 problem.
    I can't find the cause of this inconsistency.

    Any help?

    What does "manage git" mean?

    What protocol are you trying to use?
    Afaics git.gnome.org uses ssh, so to get a repository you'd use e.g.
    git clone ssh://git.gnome.org/git/<repo>

    See http://git.gnome.org/repositories.txt for all the module names.

    git clone, git pull, git push...

    I well know (at least as a normal user...) how to use git.
    As I told in my message, I can use git normally under OS-11.0. The problem is that I can't under OS-11.1.

    Then it's safe to assume something is blocking a connection to the repos.
    Does this also happen with other git repos or protocols?
    e.g.
    git clone git://github.com/git/hello-world.git
    Could there be a firewall reject line, have you checked the log files?

    Yes, this happens with
    git clone git://github.com/git/hello-world.git

    Which log files? Could you give me more information, please. I am not acquainted at all with these files.

    I tried disabling the firewall, with the same hopeless result.

    The most obvious one would be /var/log/messages
