Ssh-plugin, "no interpreter found"

Hello everyone.
I just installed a new instance of SCM manager, and i added ssh-plugin.
I created a hg repo on the server and i am trying to push the code i already have in a prexisting hg repo.
But i get this:

sandro@host-devel2:~/src/<repositoryname>.2upload$ hg push
pushing to ssh://sandro@<scm-manager-fqdn>:2222/scmadmin/<repositoryname>
abort: no suitable response from remote hg!

On scm manager logs i get:

2021-12-06 13:53:31.486 [sshd-ScmSshCommand-thread-1] [          ] ERROR com.cloudogu.scm.ssh.command.ScmCommand - received error during handling of command hg -R scmadmin/<repositoryname> serve --stdio
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: no interpreter found for command: hg -R scmadmin/<repositoryname> serve --stdio

        at java.base/java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor$

I think authentication correctly succeeded:

sandro@host-devel2:~/src/<repositoryname>.2upload$ ssh -Tv sandro@<scm-manager-fqdn> -p 2222

Anyone can point me to the right direction?

Thank you in advance…

Hi Sandro,

sadly, the ssh plugin only works for git. We would love to make it work for hg, too, but haven’t had the time nor the budget, yet.

Oh. Unfortunately I am no developer so I cannot help with that.
Anyway, i think that stating that ssh plugin works only for git would be a great documentation improvement for it.
