Permissions Required for GIT-TF?

Oct 7, 2013 at 4:51 PM
I am the admin for my company's TFS2012 server. I have gotten GIT-TF working for myself, however the other developers at my company are having permission problems. They have access to the project in question as a contributor, but performing a clone of the project is yielding permission problems. Below is a snapshot of the cmd and error:
git-tf clone <servername> <projectname>
Connecting to TFS...
Username: <username>
git-tf: Access denied connecting to TFS server <servername> <authenticating as <username>>
When I perform the same command, it doesn't ask for my username and password, presumably because I am logged into Windows under a user with permission.

I have posted this question over on stack overflow as well and haven't had any takers. Thank you for any assistance.

Are the users and the TFS server in the same local network, domain? Do the user Windows login's have proper access permissions on the TFS server? If I understood you well, you use an on-premises server, not the TFS Service in the Cloud. In this case TFS uses NTLM authentication.
