HgLab and TortoiseHg, cloning and syncing URL

Dear support,

Let me start off by saying that I am new to using HgLab, Mercurial and TortoiseHg, so I might have misunderstood how to use these systems.

So far I have successfully installed HgLab and I am able to login to HgLab via /HgLab. I have added a project 'test-project' and a repository 'test-repository'. I have installed TortoiseHg and I would like to be able to 1.) clone the repository from the server to my local drive and 2.) synchronize the repository with the server.

For cloning the repository I enter URL http:///HgLab/projects/test-project/repositories/test-repository/ as source in the TortoiseHg Clone dialog. In the Tortoise Sync dialog I used the same URL. Both respond with a login failed (below), which seems logical because I did not supply any HgLab login credentials. Can you please let me if a.) I am looking at this the right way and b.) how my URL should be formatted / how I am able to successfully clone and sync my repository.

% hg push http://HgLab/projects/test-project/repositories/test-repository/ pushing to http:///HgLab/projects/test-project/repositories/test-repository/
real URL is http:///HgLab/signin?to=%252fHgLab%252fprojects%252ftest-project%252frepositories%252ftest-repository%252f%253fcmd%253dcapabilities
'http:///HgLab/signin?to=%252fHgLab%252fprojects%252ftest-project%252frepositories%252ftest-repository%252f%253fcmd%253dcapabilities' does not appear to be an hg repository: ---%<--- (text/html; charset=utf-8)

    Yes, please just remove the entire topic. I already figured it out :-). Love how HgLab works!

    Just for future reference, what was the problem in your particular case?

    It was my fault, I am new to this and I just found out that everything I needed (cloning instructions) was available under the Clone button in HgLab. I actualley clicked the 'yes, my issue is resolved' button, but apparently the topic got created.

    I am sorry for having you spend time on this. Please delete the topic.
