ssh: Could not resolve hostname [hostname]: nodename nor servname provided, or not known
Recently I came across the same issue. I was able to ssh to my pi on my network, but not from outside my home network.
I had already:
- installed and tested ssh on my home network.
- Set a static IP for my pi.
- Set up a Dynamic DNS service and installed the software on my pi.
I referenced these instructions for setting up the static ip, and there are many more instructional resources out there.
Also, I set up port forward on my router for hosting a web site and I had even port forward port 22 to my pi's static IP for ssh, but I left the field blank where you specify the application you are performing the port forwarding for on the router. Anyway, I added 'ssh' into this field and, VOILA! A working ssh connection from anywhere to my pi.
I'll write out my router's port forwarding settings.
(ApplicationTextField)_ssh (external port)_22 (Internal Port)_22 (Protocal)_Both (To IP Address)_192.168.1.### (Enabled)_checkBox
Port forwarding settings can be different for different routers though, so look up directions for your router.
Now, when I am outside of my home network I connect to my pi by typing:
Then I am able to input my password and connect.
Git push error: ssh: Could not resolve hostname domain.com[:7555]: nodename nor servname provided, or not known
Try removing the square brackets in the URL.
ssh: Could not resolve hostname git: Name or service not known fatal: Could not read from remote repository
I was getting the same error.

The problem is, that your local computer do not know myserver.
So you have several option:
1.) You can edit your local /etc/hosts
and set there the public IP to myserver, but than you need to do it on all computer which should access myserver
2.) If you are own a domain, you can set the public IP of your server to myserver.mydomain.com in your DNS configuration.
3.) You can also set myserver in .ssh/config
