9 What do you mean by local server? You want to share the git repo on one
10 of your machines with some other machines of yours?
12 If so, the git repo is just a directory, and can be copied around with
13 scp or anything else. But to do it efficiently, git knows how to operate
14 over SSH. So on the client, you can do something like,
16 $ git clone
18 Enter the SSH password for your account on, and
19 git will clone the whole repo. Later on, running `git pull` on the
20 client (from within the repo.git directory) will sync it.
