Testing github connection

Sometimes when I want to push, I get

ssh: Could not resolve hostname github.com: nodename nor servname provided, or not known
Alexs-MacBook-Pro:testgithub alexkaert$ ssh -T git@github.com

I think it's a internet connection error.

A sketchy way to "solve" it:

  1. Change your public key online, just delete a character and remember which character
  2. $ ssh -T git@github.com
  3. If you get a public key denied error, that's good. If not keep doing step 2
  4. Chnage you public key back to the correct one.
  5. ssh -T git@github.com should work and give you the correct response, if not, repeat 1-4
  6. git push, if this failed, repeat 1-5
