I've got msysGit (Git on Windows) working just fine on my home machine, but at work, where we are behind a Microsoft ISA proxy, I get the following error when I do a git clone:
H:\>git clone git://github.com/akitaonrails/vimfiles.git Initialized empty Git repository in H:/vimfiles/.git/ github.com[0: 184.108.40.206]: errno=Invalid argument fatal: unable to connect a socket (Invalid argument)
I've tried setting the http_proxy environment variable to:
I've set the git http.proxy configuration directive:
git config --global http.proxy http://our-proxy-server:8088
Neither of the above makes a difference.
Doing a git clone with
http:// instead of
git:// yields this:
H:\>git clone http://github.com/akitaonrails/vimfiles.git Initialized empty Git repository in H:/vimfiles/.git/ fatal: http://github.com/akitaonrails/vimfiles.git/info/refs download error - The requested URL returned error: 407
407 is of course an authentication error.
So my question is: has anyone managed to get git working from behind a proxy, specifically an ISA proxy? I don't know if it's going to be worth pursing this. Any help very much appreciated.
