Frequently Asked Questions
Sometimes you might find yourself behind a firewall that blocks port 22, which is the standard SSH port. This normally would keep you from being able to connect to your repositories over SSH. There are two ways around this. First, you could connect via the HTTPS repository URLs instead. Almost every firewall lets HTTPS (port 443) through.
However, we have also opened up the nonstandard port 223 for SSH access. To connect using it, simply add the port to your repository URL, as follows:
- Subversion: svn+ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org:223/accountname/projectname
- Git: ssh://email@example.com:223/accountname/projectname.git
- Mercurial: ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org:223/accountname/projectname
