Working with git behind a proxy

 Published On

Scenario : Working for a client behind the client proxy , you need to access to some repositories on github and you have also on premises source controller with internal repos.

Let’s say your proxy address is

To manage the proxy only on a particular repo

git clone https://xxxx/xxxx.git --config "http.proxy="

To manage the proxy for all git repos at global level

git config --global http.proxy

The problem with this approach is that you’ll be unable to access to your internal git repositories if you have on premises source controller behind the proxy.

To unset global proxy settings

git config --global --unset http.proxy
