How to access a git repository from behind a proxy (which requires authentication)
I want to access a git repository from behind a proxy (which requires authentication). How to do so?
I don't know about git but to specify a proxy with authentication you use (protocol://username:password@adress:port) eg http://admin:email@example.com:8080
Sorry, but I want to run git specifically. I have already specified http_proxy variable
I found the instructions on some page.
I've pasted them here for easier access.
Basically the steps are:
1 - sudo apt-get install socket
2 - in your home directory, put a shell script called "proxy-cmd.sh"
containing (replace YOUR_PROXY and YOUR_PROXY_PORT with your own proxy
(echo "CONNECT $1:$2 HTTP/1.0"; echo; cat ) | socket YOUR_PROXY
YOUR_PROXY_PORT | (read a; read a; cat )
3 - chmod +x proxy-cmd.sh
4 - export GIT_PROXY_COMMAND=<PATH TO YOUR SCRIPT>/proxy-cmd.sh
Note: you can export GIT_PROXY_COMMAND in your ~/.bashrc file to make
When I try this, I get the following error:
Connection Refused: Forbidden
git.worldforge.org[0: 188.8.131.52]: errno=Connection refused
fatal: unable to connect a socket (Connection refused)
Please help :(
