A running daemon dialog

Sometimes you want to quickly share you local repository to others without pushing to a remote git repository. That's when you need to use TortoiseGitDaemon...

This command runs Git Daemon that serves Git protocol at port 9418 (git://hostname/).


The selected repository is exported for read/write access without further authentication.


Your host might only be accessible within your local network and you might need to adjust your firewall.

You can find more information at the section called “git-daemon(1)”
