Ubuntu: Using Git under Proxy on Ubuntu



Question:

I do git clone using terminal on Ubuntu 14.04 i.e git clone git@github.com:myusername/myrepo.git. Before I did it, I set git to use proxy with command: git config --global http.proxy proxyserver:port. However, I got this erros message when trying to clone my repo on git. Help needed.

Cloning into 'MY REPO'... ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host fatal: Could not read from remote repository.    Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.  


Solution:1

If you are trying to use an SSH connection with an HTTP proxy, it won't work. Github offers Git over HTTPS as well. So try:

git clone https://github.com/myusername/myrepo.git
