      We are trying to connect to a Git repository via SSH (not Github) using username/password (we're not using keys) and we're getting the following error:

      Failed to connect to repository : Command "git ls-remote -h ssh://account@repository/path/toApplication HEAD" returned status code 128:
      stderr: Permission denied, please try again.
      Permission denied, please try again.
      Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic,password).
      fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

      Please make sure you have the correct access rights
      and the repository exists.

      If we use the anonymous access or change the access type from SSH to HTTPS, it works fine, but we should be able to use the SSH with user/password without having to add the public/private keys.
