Checkout from Version Control - Bonobo Git Server

Hi folks,

I'm trying to checkout a GIT repository using the most recent IntelliJ 13 version.
On the IntelliJ welcome screen I'm pressing "Checkout from Version Control" and choosing GIT as provider.
As VCS Repository URL I'm entering
A hit of the Button Test shows me the information "Repository test has failed".

I am using a Bonobo GIT Server hosted in an IIS 7.5 on Windows Server 2008 R2.
Username and Password is necessary to clone the repo.
I also tried an URL like
It's possible to clone the Repo using commandline GIT tools.

Any idea what's going wrong?

Any help is appreciated.

Kind regards


What if you don't press the "Test" button, and just hit "Clone" instead? What happens in this case?


It's not possible to click clone, because the button is disabled.


It is disabled only if you've already pressed Test, and the test has failed.
Try to restart the IDE, invoke "Checkout from version control", enter the URL and click Clone at once.


Pretty cool :)
Your approach works!

Thanks very much!
