I've been trying to use git now for quite some time, however regardless of the location I get the same error message:

Initialized empty Git repository in /home/kyle/f-spot/.git/
git.gnome.org[0: 209.132.176.202]: errno=Connection timed out
fatal: unable to connect a socket (Connection timed out)

I remember reading somewhere that this maybe caused by a firewall, or port access problem.

However I have no firewall installed at the time, and I understand very little about port forwarding.

I am hoping someone had a similar problem and knows a good "HOW-TO"

much thanks in advance

Hi drkages,


I've been trying to use git now for quite some time, however regardless of the location I get the same error message:


Initialized empty Git repository in /home/kyle/f-spot/.git/
git.gnome.org[0: 209.132.176.202]: errno=Connection timed out
fatal: unable to connect a socket (Connection timed out)


Can you also give the exact git command that you have been using?
