`guix pull` of an ssh channel fails

I have a substitute server that needs to build a couple of packages with

* inetutlis version 2.0 from the core-updates branch instead of 1.9.4
  from the master branch

* glib with longer test timeout

* offlineimap without tests

I am trying to setup a channel for this substitute server's patched Guix
repository. `guix pull` is failing.

On a client of the substitute server I have reconfigured with this in
it's system configuration:

    (service guix-service-type
Where is the substitute server's public signing key.

I have added the ssh public key of the substitute server to the client
with `ssh-copy-id`.  The substitute server's ssh public key is in
~/.ssh/authorize_keys.  I have also done the reverse with the client's
ssh public key and it is on the substitute server's

This is the contents of ~/.config/guix/channels.scm:

  (name 'guix)
  (url "ssh://<user>@<ip-address>:22/path/to/patched-guix-repo/")
  (branch "master")))

When I run `guix pull` I get this error.

Updating channel 'guix' from Git repository at 
guix pull: error: Git error: error authenticating: no auth sock variable

I can successfully run `git clone

I can successfully transfer files from the substitute server to the
client with scp without entering a password.

Can a channel use a ssh url?
