The old fatal repository not found... with a twist

So I have 2 github accounts under 2 different emails.  I thought that if I created a repo that had the --local settings of user.name and user.email set to the other repo that I'd be able to clone a private repo in that account.  Alas, that is not the case. Said repo can still not be found.

 

Can anyone help out with connecting to the private repo?

 

Thanks

Hi @C83-test,

 

Welcome to the Github Community Forum!

 

You are trying to use a private repository of account A with an other non authorized account B? Do you clone the private repository with account A and give the credentials of account B?

Nope.  I'm trying to do exactly what I said I was trying to do in the OP. No matter though... I found a way around the problem.
