I have an existing local Git repo with an origin at bitbucket.  When I try to push the changes I get the message:

"fatal: could not read Password for 'https://<myusername>': No such device or address"

I can't figure out how to configure a password for the remote in Wing.  Any ideas?

Wing's version control integration assumes you use ssh to access the repository on bitbucket (or wherever) and an ssh agent that stores your private key so no password is needed with each operation.  If you clone the repository via the ssh: url (and not https) then I think it should work, as long as you also do ssh-add or add your private key to pageant if using putty on Windows for ssh.
