Hello,

I'm trying to capture this command I'm running in the command prompt git clone https://github.com/murrayju/CreateProcessAsUser which is not executing and is returning this value fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/murrayju/CreateProcessAsUser/': Failed to connect to github.com port 443: Timed out  when it fails.

 

I have to chain Fiddler to my work proxy and I believe the CLI uses the system proxy, so I have to copy the IE proxy to the system proxy and then I'm not sure if I have to manually configure the Fiddler proxy to the system proxy or copy the system proxy to Fiddler and then set it to loop back like the IE proxy? I've tried a couple of different methods and I'm not seeing any of the traffic show up from the CLI and would appreciate guidance in getting this configured correctly.

Thanks

Hi Brad,

Some terminal applications, including Git, are not using the system proxy (by default). Like most Node applications, the Git terminal app might be using the terminal settings, set through http_proxy and https_proxy environment variables (instead of the system proxy).

You should be able to resolve the issue either by setting the proxy to be used from Git (see examples here) or by settings the environment variable and disabling the SSL verification (or passing the Fiddler root certificate).
