Unable to push changes to a repository

All day long I’ve been trying to push changes to a repository and after a LONG hang I get an error. Session log follows:

% git status
On branch master
Your branch is ahead of ‘origin/master’ by 2 commits.
(use “git push” to publish your local commits)

nothing to commit, working tree clean

% git push origin master
ssh_exchange_identification: read: Connection timed out
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

Any ideas?

Hi @pleopard777 ,

It looks like your remote is not reachable from where you are. Is there perhaps a firewall in the way?

Yes it’s a configuration problem … I found a fix elsewhere, posting fix in  a minute
