So it looks as if your gitlab server really is configured to use "gitlab" as user name. Just wanted to make sure that's really the case; it's a bit unusual and it wouldn't have been the first time that some copy-paste error threw analysis off. Recently there was someone who complained about SSH, and in the end it turned out he used an https URI.|
The user name doesn't matter at all for EGit.
Re (3): So there is a "%HOME%\.ssh" directory, and it does contain your id_rsa and id_rsa.pub files. There is no config file, which is OK. Eclipses SSH2_HOME preference points to the same directory.
Which SSH client library do you use in Eclipse? Check in Eclipse under Preferences->Team->Git; you can choose between "Jsch" and "Apache MINA sshd". Does the problem occur with both?
If you don't see any option to choose on that preference page, then you are using an old EGit version. Upgrade to EGit nightly from the update site https://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates-nightly .
Which EGit version are you using anyway? If it's older than 5.6, I'd recommend upgrading to EGit nightly in any case.
It could also be a problem with the private key file itself. Perhaps it's in some format that Eclipse doesn't understand. Did you generate that key recently? If so, how? Does the key have a passphrase? (The way ssh-keygen writes private keys has changed a while ago, and only a recent EGit version will be able to read such keys.)
And no, it's not a SSHv1 vs. SSHv2 problem. EGit uses SSHv2. (I think nowadays almost everyone and everything uses that, only some embedded devices still have old SSHv1 servers.)
