when I try to perform a git clone command I am propted to provide a password.
When I try the password that I had been provided, I get the following errors:

Connection colsed by (ip address) port (port number)
fatal: could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the connection access rights
and the repository exists.
Does this error sound familiar to anyone? Is there anything outside the obvious that I need to check that I can not imagine? I mean, this looks like a job for my network administrator or my supervisor or boss. But maybe there is something I don't know.
