I'm relatively new to eclipse, so this is beginner stuff:
The default git plugin is working great for a local repository.
Trying to clone (or commit to) a github repository over https it denies my credentials. I get a window prompt for name and password three times and then it gives up.
"Can't connect to URI: https://github.com/somebody/myproject.git: not authorized"
(yes I'm using "somebody" which isn't my username but I don't want to post it here, so pretend I'm using my real github name.)
I *know* that I'm using the correct name and password, I've tried 3096382709 times, including logging out of github.com and logging back in with the same creds to make sure they work; no problem.
In the clone failure promt it suggests setting http.sslVerify to false in the git configuration, which I did, it didn't help. I also checked to make sure eclipse can get on the internet at all by checking for updates in the Help->Check for updates window, and it can. (Is there another way to check that?)
What else could I be doing wrong?
