clone git repository via active FTP
I’m a branch office worker and have uploaded my existing repo to the ftp server at my company’s central office. The central office is using Microsoft’s ftp server. I have no access to install anything on the server and was only able to connect/browse to the ftp server using a real ftp client that supports active mode ftp.
I have tried cloning with the following command lines:
git clone ftp://companyDomain\email@example.com/project.repo/.git git clone ftp://firstname.lastname@example.org@ftp.company.com/project.repo/.git git clone ftp://email@example.com/project.repo/.git git clone ftp://username:firstname.lastname@example.org/project.repo/.git
And I get the following error message:
error: Failed connect to
ftp.company.com:21; No error while accessing
fatal: HTTP request failed
When entering the above commands I immediately get prompted for my password. I enter the password, some time passes and then I received the above error message.
To be completely clear I’m am NOT looking to push the head version of my source to an FTP server for deployment, so things like git-ftp, https://github.com/resmo/git-ftp, don’t help me out at all. What I want to do is have my repo on the ftp server and everyone on my very small team be able to push/fetch changes to the repo on the ftp server.
Does git support active FTP?
What’s going on?

Do they use the default FTP port? If they don’t, you need to declare it like so:
git clone ftp://username:email@example.com:PORTHERE/project.repo/.git
git clone ftp://username:firstname.lastname@example.org/project.repo/.git
I tried also all FTP examples here, none was working. Since my server pc is a linux machine I installed git on it and then can clone be done use:
git clone username:servername:/folder1/folder2/repoFolder.git
Then you will be asked for password.
If no git is installed on server you will get:
sh: git-upload-pack: not found fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.
