We have 3 computers, all on Aptana Studio 3.0. We have 1 GitHub account with a web project in it. On one computer, we can use git commands both with the context menu '"Team" and with the terminal, but on the other two computers, only the terminal works. If we try to say pull via the menu, we get:

"Permission denied (publickey). fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly"

All settings and everything are setup identical what we can see. We've tried alot of stuff, regenerating keys, reinstalling and so on but nothing seems to work. Do you guys have any idea why this error (a common error as I've learned) occurs?

    Hi Victor,

    Do you happen to be using Egit or the Aptana Git support?

    Hi Ingo,
    I don't really understand what you mean with your question, but we can use git with the built in git support in Aptana (terminal inside Aptana).

    However, I may have found out what's causing the problem:

    On my computer as I said I could pull/push from the context menu, but yesterday I updated the Aptana Studio software (from inside Aptana) and now I can't pull/push anymore. This explains it since the other two computers just downloaded Aptana the day before yesterday and mine is some weeks old..

    Hi Victor,

    Ah...What is the git URL you are using? is it git: or https://?

    If you update to the latest nightly version, does that fix the problem?

    I have the same problem and can perhaps respond better...

    Updated on 4/22 to the 4/20 build (maybe you guys were just 'off' that day ;))

    Since then, inline CLI > git commands work find, but its almost as if aptana disassociated the ssh keys in the team > push/pull menu.

    Hi Dan,

    There were a bug or two introduced as a result of fixing some other bugs. If you try the latest nightly version, does it fix the issue?

    Hi Dan,

    Try running Studio as Administrator (http://wiki.appcelerator.org/display/tis/Miscellaneous#Miscellaneou...) and see if you could update afterward.

    Hi! I'm still having this issue in my work computer (Win7 Professional 64bit) but not in my laptop (Win7 Prof 32bit). I'm running Aptana Studio 3, build: Any ideas on how to fix it?

    Struggling to get Git to play ball within Aptana Studio 3 on Windows 7 Utlimate 64-bit.

    I have a local repo set up and can use both the Git GUI and Git Bash without isssue e.g. if I go into the Git Bash, change to my repo working dir and use 'git push', it asks for my passphrase and does what it needs to do.

    I can 'commit' to my local repo from within Aptana fine. But 'Push' from the team menu was resulting in

    'aptana git fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly'

    This was the same with either of the two remotes I have setup. From the 'config' file within my project Git folder:

    [branch "master"] [remote "origin"]

    url = ssh://[email blocked]:37322/home/myuser/maingit/
    fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*

    [remote "assembla"]

    url = git@git.assembla.com:myproject.git
    fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/assembla/*

    Updated to 'Beta' build and same result, though the error now comes up in a alertbox rather than opening the console.

    I'm sure this is something simple I'm doing wrong. It's as if the 'git' triggered by Aptana isn't switching into my git repo dir maybe?

    Love to hear your ideas, I'm stuck at the moment unable to push from within Aptana.

    We just fixed that NPE error. The fix should be available in the 3.0.4 beta tonight.

    Adam Knowles's Avatar

    Ingo can confirm that's made the Beta respond as the Release was doing, avoiding the NPE.

    So now I'm where I was before. I try to 'git push' from within Aptana and get on the console:

    fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

    And in the logs:

    !ENTRY org.eclipse.core.net 4 0 2011-08-06 05:17:26.304 !MESSAGE WinHttp.GetProxyForUrl for pac failed with error 'The URL does not use a recognized protocol ' #12006.

    I can now push to my second remote 'assembla' (see definitions above) no problem but pushing to origin causes this strange 'hung up'. I can 'git push' or 'git push origin master' from a shell without problem.

    Any ideas?

    With thanks,

    Hi Adam,

    Can you define SSH_CMD environment variable in My Computer/Properties/Advanced/Environment variables and set it to "ssh.exe -v -v"
    Then restart Aptana Studio. Do pull/push to your repository and send us Console view output for it.

    I think I had the same issue as the OP and fixed it by commenting out line 81 in ssh-askpass.tcl as suggested by another thread: https://aptanastudio.tenderapp.com/discussions/problems/3118-aptana...

    I defined SSH_CMD and this makes no difference. ssh doesn't appear to be any more verbose: same message as before.

    Git all works from command line / Bash (I'm on Win7) so I guess it must be something to do with environment variables.

    I authenticate with keys rather than password and I don't know if Aptana supports that? The keys need loading and I don't tend to use Pageant.

    When I'm on my Macbook it stores them in the keychain automatically and the exact same process that doesn't work on the Win7 PC works perfectly.

    I note that this fix from Tomas mentions about passphrases, so maybe that's it? I'll give that a go as soon as I'm able.

    Hi Adam,

    Aptana Studio supports private keys authentications for ssh.
    Do you use passphrase on your private keys ? If not, then changes to ssh-askpass.tcl described above won't have effect on you.

    I think the issue is with the keys location. Can you test git commands from Aptana Studio built-in Terminal ?

    I do use passphrases on the private keys. Does Aptana have the capability to ask me for the passphrase when I push/pull?

    Otherwise I'll try the built-in Terminal. From memory that worked when the command-menu didn't.

    Aptana Studio has the capability to ask for passphrase.
    You could test it even in GitBash by executing > export GIT_SSH=[path_to_aptana_studio]/plugins/com.aptana.git.core_[version]/os/win32/sshw.exe before the the git command.

    I just moved to a 64 bit machine (Windows 7) and am experiencing the same issues with the command menu in Aptana. Git Bash works fine, as does the Terminal in Aptana, using git push. But the command menu Team->Push doesn't work. Any ideas?

    If you are using msysgit, try to copy keys in c:\users[your_user_name].ssh to c:\program files(x86)\git.ssh.

    I'm new to Git, GitHub, and Aptana, so perhaps I shouldn't be surprised I'm having trouble!
    I tried Yuki's suggestion, but still got the "Permission denied (publickey)." message when I tried to use Team > pull. Here is what I did:
    I copied three files from c:\Users\myusername.ssh\
    github_rsa github_rsa.pub known_hosts ...and placed them in a folder I created: c:\Program Files.ssh
    and c:\Program Files (x86).ssh

    no dice. Thanks for any help you can provide to get me up and pulling!

    Hi Marty,

    Put the key to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Git.ssh\" ,not "C:\Program Files (x86)\Git.ssh\".
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Git" may be "C:\Program Files\Git" or other, depending on your environment.

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Git.ssh\id_rsa
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Git.ssh\id_rsa.pub

    I solved the problem as follows:

    The essential step:
    - Then I copied the "id_rsa" and "id_rsa.pub" files to C:\Program Files (x86)\Git.ssh\

    Now finally Aptana could do git pull with the SSH keys.
