Attempting to add an existing Git repository to Fisheye on Windows results in the following error:

Caused by: com.cenqua.fisheye.config.ConfigException: Error talking to repository:
0 [main] ssh 7496 tty_list::allocate_tty: No tty allocated


The CYGWIN environment variable contains "tty" which prevents proper communication.


Correct the CYGWIN environment variable so that it doesn't contain "tty".

Further Reading

(no)tty - If set, Cygwin enabled extra support (i.e., termios) for UNIX-like ttys in the Windows console. This option has been removed because it can be easily replaced by using a terminal like mintty, and it does not work well with some Windows programs.
