Getting Git to work with a proxy server - fails with "Request timed out"


How do I get Git to use a proxy server?

I need to check out code from a Git server, but it shows "Request timed out" every time. How do I get around this?

Alternatively, how can I set a proxy server?


The command to use:

git config --global http.proxy http://proxyuser:[email protected]:8080
  • change proxyuser to your proxy user
  • change proxypwd to your proxy password
  • change to the URL of your proxy server
  • change 8080 to the proxy port configured on your proxy server

Note that this works for both HTTP and HTTPS repositories.

If you decide at any time to reset this proxy and work without proxy:

The command to use:

git config --global --unset http.proxy

Finally, to check the currently-set proxy:

git config --global --get http.proxy
