Can't configure VCS using GIT default private key

I'm trying to configure a VCS using git, setting the authentication as 'default private key ' since I want the checkout and build to occur on my agent. (Mac mini).
The fetch url is my repo in GitHub.

However, when I press the 'Test Connection' button I get the following message:
Test connection failed in xxxx :: xxxx xxxxx. List remote refs failed: com.jcraft.jsch.JSchException: session is down"

I configured all the relavent SSH keys on my mac mini, and if I try to do 'git clone' everything works fine locally.
The team city server is installed on a windows machine. Do you I need to do something specific there too ?
