Corporate Git – Windows

You need to have administrator privileges on your Windows XP. If you do not, contact your IT department. If they deny it from you, look for another job immediately.

Create a user to represent the git service on your box. Right-click “My Computer”, Manage, Local Users and Groups, Users. Right-click the right pane, New User…

Let’s call it “git”. Password never expires, user does not have to (or cannot) change it. Password does not really matter, we’ll see later why.

Member of “Users”. Not an admin. We won’t let other people screw up our box completely through ssh.

It’s user profile and home folder should be the standard “D:\Documents and Settings\git” or similar (I store the user profiles on “D:\”).
