to be able to clone or do any thing else with github one needs to have 443 open. Is there any way to work around that. I'm contracting at a state agency and the process of getting the approvals are in the pipeline but in the interim I'm hoping to get familiar with all things git.

thanks a bunch.

You don't need to have your port 443 open. Github, which is the one hosting the HTTPS (HTTP+SSL) service, is the one that has its port 443 open.

In normal setups of corporate networks, as long as you can access the secure (HTTPS) version of their website on the web browser you use, you should be fine.

It seems like either a firewall mangles your SSH packets or there is some proxy messing with your SSH requests. You can use the Smart HTTP URL for your repository instead: https://github.com/blog/642-smart-http-support

git clone https://username@github.com/username/project.git

Click HTTP (beside "SSH") on your GitHub project page to get the URL.

thanks kristinalim,

I tried the following

$ git clone http://github.com/<myusername>/<myproject>.git

the error I received was as follows:
error: Recv failure: Connection was reset while accessing http://github.com/SangeetMohan/Play-Area2.git/info/refs
fatal: HTTP request failed


$ git clone https://username@github.com/username/project.git

for this I closed the powershell window since it just sat there...
