I have a self-hosted GitLab server in my home office that has been working well for several years.
Back in October I changed my internet service from Spectrum cable internet to AT&T fiber. Ever since, I get frequent timeout errors when I try to fetch, push, or pull. By frequent, I mean that I often have to retry 5 or 10 times, every time I want to fetch, push, or pull, until it finally works.
The error is this:
“fatal: unable to access ‘https://redacted.git/’: Failed to connect to redacted.com port 443: Timed out”
One strange factor is that this only seems to occur when I’m working from inside the house, while connected to the same network as the Linux box hosting the GitLab server. My collaborators who connect to the server from outside haven’t had problems, and I even tried connecting my laptop to a hotspot from my phone’s LTE network connection and the problem went away…
I’m not 100% certain if the problem has to do with changing internet service, or if it was due to GitLab version updates performed around the same time.
Anyone have any ideas? The problem is very annoying and wastes a lot of my time, so I would love to resolve it.
