I don't know how to increase the logging level on the client, but I
want to give some hints.
First, if you're trying to use the SSH transport, the whole thing
works like this:
1) The client part logs in to the remote machine using SSH and spawns
the git-receive-pack binary on the remote.
2) The git-send-pack on the client side is then spawned and these two
binaries communicate over the SSH link.
Hence, several problems may arise in this scenario:
1) You fail to authenticate properly -- check /var/log/auth.log (or
whatever it is on your server side). Also try to log in to the remote
side using plain SSH client.
2) Authentication goes OK but git-receive-pack fails to start (not on
the PATH of your remote account for instance). You can check it by
trying to run it while being logged in as a regular user via SSH.
3) The steps above work OK but the path to the repositiry you
specified does not exist or is unreadable or something like this.
Double check this.
Second, if you're trying to use msysgit from the Windows box, you may
have additional troubles with authentication.
As you provided exactly zero amount of information about your setup, I
won't be guessing.
