You get error:14090086:SSL in SmartGit when trying to clone a remote repository using HTTPS (SSL):
This solution is a security risk if ever used with an external site and is intended for intranet servers with self-signed ssl certificates. Do not use this solution with public servers and if your repository is ever moved to an external site, you will want to switch http.sslVerify back to true.
You might see examples using a global setting (git config --global http.sslverify "false") . In the solution presented here, we are intentionally disabling SSL verification on a per repository basis so you can still safely use public repositories.
