## Using the HTTP/HTTPS transport
### Https with Self-Signed Certificates
You must tell Git/JGit not to verify the self-signed certificate in order to perform any remote Git operations.
The default self-signed certificate generated by Gitlbit GO is bound to *localhost*.
If you are using Eclipse/EGit/JGit clients, you will have to generate your own certificate that specifies the exact hostname used in your clone/push url.
You must do this because Eclipse/EGit/JGit (< 3.0) always verifies certificate hostnames, regardless of the *http.sslVerify=false* client-side setting.
- **Eclipse/EGit/JGit**
1. Window->Preferences->Team->Git->Configuration
2. Click the *New Entry* button
3. <pre>Key = <em>http.sslVerify</em>
Value = <em>false</em></pre>
- **Command-line Git** ([Git-Config Manual Page](
<pre>git config --global --bool --add http.sslVerify false</pre>
### Http Post Buffer Size
You may find the default post buffer of your git client is too small to push large deltas to Gitblit. Sometimes this can be observed on your client as *hanging* during a push. Other times it can be observed by git erroring out with a message like: error: RPC failed; result=52, HTTP code = 0.
This can be adjusted on your client by changing the default post buffer size:
<pre>git config --global http.postBuffer 524288000</pre>
### Disabling SNI
You may run into SNI alerts (Server Name Indication). These will manifest as failures to clone or push to your Gitblit instance.
#### Java-based Clients
Luckily, Java 6-based clients ignore SNI alerts but when using Java 7-based clients, SNI checking is enabled by default. You can disable SNI alerts by specifying the JVM system parameter `-Djsse.enableSNIExtension=false` when your Java-based client launches.
For Eclipse, you can append `-Djsse.enableSNIExtension=false` to your *eclipse.ini* file.
#### Native Clients
Native clients may display an error when attempting to clone or push that looks like this:
C:\projects\git\gitblit>git push rhcloud master
error: error:14077458:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:reason(1112) while accessing
fatal: HTTP request failed
