The company I work for has purchased github enterprise and has the latest version deployed over http. When I try to configure a new task repository Mylyn Github repository type, I get an error stating "Error validating settings: Connection refused".

If I copy the Server url into a browser I am able to connect just fine. I am also able to connect to with the connector.

When I looked at the FAQ it states that all requests are made over HTTPS [1]. So my question is, does the API strictly use HTTPS even if the URL that is configured is HTTP? If so, can this be relaxed in order to support deployments that are using only HTTP? If not, any suggestions for how to proceed?

The API always uses HTTPS not matter what URL is entered.

What version of the GitHub Mylyn Connector are you using? Version 1.3.0 or above is recommended for GitHub Enterprise.

Also, can you share the URL you are trying to use? If you could, even replacing any private information with some other strings, it would help to diagnose why it can't connect.

Hello Kevin,

I saw this posting and it matches the problem I am having. I cannot seem to be able to connect to my company's github (github Enterprise). I am using the following:

Server: //
Label: organizations/OUR-ORG issues
User ID: <myId>
Password: <myPassword>

Whether I use http or https, it refuses the connection.

Hope to hear from you. Trying to use Mylyn for issue tracking/work env.

I'm having this issue as well. My company's GitHub Enterprise implementation doesn't support HTTPS connections (don't ask me why, I have no idea), only HTTP and GIT/SSH.

I'd love to integrate Mylyn Tasks and the Issues from my project's repo, but I get a "Error validating settings: Connection refused: connect" error when I try to validate settings.

Server: http:// github. local.domain/me/project.git # Spaces added to fool BB editor
Label: me/project issues
User ID: me
Password: mypasswd
Disconnected: No
Anonymous: No
Save Password: Yes

I've tried multiple permutations of the available settings - no userid/pw; anonymous; disconnected; anonymous+disconnected; etc...

To answer the question asked above, I'm using EGit 2.1.0 currently. I see that 2.2.0 is out there, just on a different repo, so I'll update and give it a go.

I'm guessing that this all comes back to the core issue of the plugin ignoring the protocol specified in this window and using HTTPS instead for everything. That seems like a poor decision, when it comes to supporting GitHub Enterprise deployments, but I understand that that's a small subset of users.

Anyone found a way around this yet?
