Re: Does not provide shell access

HI @Josejose12,


Thank you for being here! We only support git push over ssh, essentially setting up the remote to be an ssh remote and git using the ssh keys you have configured to push. There is no way to ssh directly. You can see this for yourself by running: $ ssh


In my case, I have an ssh key associated with my account, so I see:

Hi andreagriffiths11! You've successfully authenticated, but GitHub does not provide shell access.


I hope this helps and have a great day.
