Since we've been having frequent problem using Git+Bash because of its lack of Nano (and people not following the installation steps to the letter), we attempted using MobaXTerm instead, and have them run

apt-cyg install nano

apt-cyg install git

before the class. This worked great.... until we tried a "git pull/clone/push". For some reason, everything works, except this. I could not replicate on Windows 7, but both users with Windows 10 had problems, and my colleague could replicate it with Windows 8.

Has anyone run into this problem and knows of a simple solution ?

I already found this page which seems related:


but even if I could reproduce the problem and the solution, I don't think that installing putty to approve of a key is a viable solution for beginners...
