[farmshare-discuss] Leaving ssh-agent to run in the background?

Jaeho - thanks for that...I think I did test on the same machine and was still forced to restart ssh-agent..but in any case, your solution to use the personal access token is a much better idea.

John - Public access works, but I want students to be able to push to the repos they own as well. I had them using ssh...When I run `ssh -T git at`, I get the "permission denied (public key)" error; when it works, I get the success message from Github.

Thanks everyone for the help,

This should work; I clone from github all the time from the corns. Not 
sure what you mean by having to restart the ssh-agent.

I'm assuming you are trying to clone private repos (otherwise there's no 
need for an SSH key).

Are you using the HTTPS or the SSH protocol to clone from github? (E.g., 
"git clone git at" or "git clone")

What do you get when you run "ssh -T git at"? (Both when it's 
working, and when it's not.)

Lastly, I had troubles in the past in cloning from github on a different 
set of campus servers (not the corns). I added this to my ~/.ssh/config 
and it resolved the issue:

     Port 443

I'm not knowledgeable about the details of this authentication besides how it works on my own laptop, so I wanted to check if it might be just the way things are set up on afs?
