Reading about the Git user permissions, it seems that you can access a
git repository in (read-only) mode via ssh as long as you are a
registered SourceForge.net user. So it seems the username in question
will be your registered username, instead of anonymous.


This is how I understood the above web page, but they are not very
clear on that point. An example would have been nice. If this does not
work, I would suggest you take up the issue with SourceForge support.
Alternatively, asb your network admin to open the Git port (I really
can't see issues with such a task) or I can add you as a developer to
fpGUI but with read access only.
