Hi,

I am facing issue in downloading connectbot source code from "http://code.google.com/p/connectbot/source/browse/?name=connectbot_1.6.2#git%253Fstate%253Dclosed".
One way I know of downloading is by making use of git or Cygwin.

Can anybody help me in downloading source code.

Thanks in Advance:-)

Yes, that page mentions "git clone https://code.google.com/p/connectbot/ specifically. What problems have you had doing this? Obviously, you need to install git first.

Hi Hussein,
Thanks for your useful link
But when I am trying to create clone by passing command "git clone https://code.google.com/p/connectbot/" to git.
I am getting error in git:

error:Couldn't resolve host 'code.google.com' while accessing https://code.google.com/p/connectbot/info/refs
fatal:HTTP request failed

Please help me to solve this issue.

If git (or any other program) cannot locate code.google.com, you have some sort of network problem. Most commonly a problem with DNS, since DNS is what resolves a domain name such as "code.google.com" or "www.coderanch.com" to find the actual IP address for that site.

Hi Tim Holloway,

So is there any solution to resolve that network problem in git?

Network problems are network problems. git doesn't have any influence over them.
