I haven't done this in ages but:



You could also try setting up gerrit, but you really shouldn't do this unless you need code review. Also, gerrit is a pain compared to vanilla git:



Personally, I would just use SSH instead unless you really need a server with separate authentication:





I forgot the simplest solution for a central server with permissions is to install gitolite, that's what I ended up doing instead of using gitorious after trying both back in the day: http://blog.countabl...ite-and-gitweb/

I agree with Snaphat, if you don't need any fancy features, create a git repository on your Ubuntu machine and clone it wherever you want it over SSH. Job done.
