What would you like to do?
1. Make Home Directory for SShH keys.
c://users/UserName/.SSH (for Windows 7)
2. Generate SSH key by command:
ssh-keygen -t rsa -C ""
# Creates a new ssh key, using the provided email as a label
Generating public/private rsa key pair.
It's created a pair of keys - private and public in home dir .SSH
3. You must creat file with a name "config" in SSH Home dir
touch ~/.ssh/config
4. Put the strings bellow to the config file by notepad for example
Port 22
IdentityFile /c/users/username/.ssh/id_rsa
6. Adding your SSH key to the ssh-agent
Ensure ssh-agent is enabled:
If you are using Git Bash, turn on ssh-agent:
# start the ssh-agent in the background
eval "$(ssh-agent -s)"
Agent pid 59566
7. Add your SSH key to the ssh-agent. If you used an existing SSH key rather than generating a new SSH key,
you'll need to replace id_rsa in the command with the name of your existing private key file.
$ ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa
8. And than you must copy to clipboard SSH link from your repository
9. Clone your repository
git clone
10. Testing your SSH connection
Open Git Bash.
Enter the following:
ssh -T
