The "No address associated with hostname" looks at first to be the real
problem. I would expect that error to appear earlier than it did in the
As a sanity check, try verifying that if you SSH into the Review Board
server, you're able to resolve the hostname you used. I expect it will
work, but just to check.
Also, from the command line, try SSHing into your Git server (assuming it
allows remote access) using rbssh. If that fails, try with:
DEBUG_RBSSH=1 rbssh <parameters>
There should then be a log file in the current directory with more details
of the attempt.
So, regardless of this error, you cannot use Review Board with a remote Git
repository without a raw file URL mask field filled in. Git has no ability
to fetch individual files from a repository without a full clone, and this
is a problem for Review Board. So, you will need something like cgit or
gitweb sitting on top of your Git repository, and the fields properly
filled in. We have some examples in our docs at
