ssh: Could not resolve hostname + STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION at eip=68086014

Original question

From a few hours of struggling with installing git on Windows 7. First I installed the GitHub on Windows but not appealed to me. Then I installed the Git-1.9.2-preview20140411 and have started to have problems.

I suppose that there is a conflict by multiple installations. So I uninstalled everything. I decided to try Cygwin.

  • How do I build and use the latest version of git on cygwin?
  • Increasing Cygwin's memory allocation
  • Git core.safecrlf different behavior on files with same line endings
  • git add interactive hangs in cygwin, not in cmd prompt
  • Cygwin git config --global --edit looks in wrong directory
  • SSL certificate rejected trying to access GitHub over HTTPS behind firewall
  • I acted according to this tutorial: How To install Git client on Windows using Cygwin By Johnathan Mark Smith

    I added the generated public key SSH to my account on GittHub by Web browser . I created the first repository (through a browser).

    After returning to the cygwin terminal and I typed:

    git clone

    I received such a result

    Cloning into 'ZFExt'...
    ssh: Could not resolve hostname Non-recoverable failure in name resolution
    fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

    I do not understand this message. I did something wrong?

    EDIT 1:
    To the person who gave me the minus one. In your opinion I shouldn’t have asked. Instead, format the hard drive. In this way it would be okay?

    Updated question

    I started to ask google with less detailed questions and i found it: git and ssh: Could not resolve hostname, ping works. I changed my DNS addresses to open DNS and was able to clone my repo by using ip adres instead domain:

    git clone git@ some_git_repo/

    Using domain name still not work:

    git clone some_git_repo/
    Cloning into 'some_git_repo'...
    ssh: Could not resolve hostname Non-recoverable failure in name resolution
    fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

    Any ideas (other then changing DNS)?

  • default set of “refspec” for “git push”
  • Git on Windows not working with remote because of “SSL protocol” errors
  • Git checkout file - casing in file name
  • Using Git to track mysql schema - some questions
  • Does gitignore work for files that have previously been versioned?
  • Git error “fatal: 'my_blog_tmp' does not appear to be a git repository”

    I had this issue inside a VMware Fusion VM. I had to change my network from NAT to Bridged and it started working.

    For anyone else having this issue on VMWare Fusion and Windows 10, see this thread:

    In summary, ssh won’t do dns resolution over NAT on Fusion with Windows 10. This is a known bug, but in the meantime, add an entry to your host file to access bitbucket

    Also, as @Jim Redmond pointed out, bitbucket is changing their IP addresses soon (December 15, 2016).

    Another, more permanent, option would be to set Google as your DNS provider. Use or Or for ipv6: 2001:4860:4860::8888 or 2001:4860:4860::8844.

    For me, it started happening when I upgraded to Git 2.7.4. The fix in the link below worked for me, you need to change SSH configuration in \etc\ssh\ssh_config.

    AddressFamily inet

    See the last comment in the thread linked below:

    Can’t resolve hostname with SSH


    It’s been a few days and I have not found any solution. In conclusion, it’s more a problem with the operating system than the tools (Cygwin, Git).

    I installed two competing Git clients (Git-1.9.2-preview20140411 and GitHub on Windows) which resulting in messed up windows registry. This gives in an error: STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION at eip=68086014. I returned to app GitHub For Windows and will use Windows Power Shell. It’s far from perfect but it works.

    I was so focused on problem mentioned above that I didn’t spot problem with DNS. Because I don’t have knowledge how to solve this problem (answers on stackoverflow didn’t work for me) I will use the IP address instead of github domain in commands like git clone and others until I reinstall Windows. 🙁

    I have modified the title to more precise.

    Big thanks to @Chris for his contribution.

    I had the same problem .then I tried with account name prefixed in the domain.
    like try

    git clone

    it worked for me also make sure in your git config you are using the same url.

    Experienced the same problem with Windows 7 and VmWare Fusion 8.5.3.

    Tried 2 options. Both worked. But issue is weird. Seem to happen to and only.

    1. Setting DNS manually in adapter settings (e.g.
    2. Change networking from NAT to Bridged

    For me it works fine when I changed the hostname to ip address.

    Git Baby is a git and github fan, let's start git clone.
