Clone git Repo on Non-Standard Port - by Wesley Moore

Clone git Repo on Non-Standard Port

Published on

I use an SSH tunnel to access my computer at work from home. On occasion I want to clone a git repo that is on the remote server. To do so it’s necessary to specify the port, which doesn’t work with the conventional clone syntax.

E.g. git clone hostname:path/to/repo. The solution is to be a little more specific:

git clone ssh://localhost:2222/~username/path/to/repo
