GIT clone over HTTP: who knew?
Quick note for others and so I don’t forget.
If you’re behind a proxy (like I am) and try to do a git-clone using the git:// protocol, surely it will fail if you’re firewall is restrictive. The beautiful thing is, you can use http:// protocol instead to get around this restriction.
git clone git://github.com/jcnetdev/yubnub.git
However that will fail. Instead do:
git clone http://github.com/jcnetdev/yubnub.git
The only other gotcha is that you might need to setup your proxy in your environment. To do this, simply do:
username = your network username (someuser)
password = your network password (somepassword)
proxy_ip = the ip address of your proxy server (192.168.1.1)
proxy_port = the port number for the proxy (80)
the full string would look like this:
