Hi, I wanted to download a public repository, from sourceforge.net.
I have tried using socat and configure my proxy but with no success, I have given the detailed specification for configuration of the ssh below,
proxycommand socat - PROXY:x.x.x.x:%h:%p,proxyport=3128,proxyauth=username- password
Also the shell script for the proxy we have constituted is as follows
# Use socat to proxy git through an HTTP CONNECT firewall.
# Useful if you are trying to clone git:// from inside a company.
# Requires that the proxy allows CONNECT to port 9418.
# Save this file as gitproxy somewhere in your path (e.g., ~/bin) and then run
# /usr/bin/socat - PROXY:x.x.x.x. 7:\$1:\$2,proxyport=3128
# chmod +x gitproxy
# git config --global core.gitproxy gitproxy
# More details at http://tinyurl.com/8xvpny
# Configuration. Common proxy ports are 3128, 8123, 8000.
exec socat STDIO PROXY:$_proxy:$1:$2,proxyport=$_proxyport,proxyauth=username password
Can you please guide us if we have correctly followed the constitution for socat and creating the proxy overall.
