I am working on an Ubuntu OS.
I have tried cloning several repositories from such as this –

git clone git://
Cloning into 'newcomers-tutorial'...
fatal: unable to connect to[0:]: errno=Connection timed out

  • Git: multiple subtrees/submodules in one folder?
  • Git: discover which commits ever touched a range of lines
  • How delete all pushable commits?
  • How to detect if a git clone failed in a bash script
  • How to squash a lot of commits automatically?
  • And even tried with http:// –

    git clone
    Cloning into 'newcomers-tutorial'...
    fatal: not found: did you run git update-server-info on the server?

    whereas if i clone any other repo from github it is successfully cloned.
    Such as –

    git clone
    Cloning into 'Arduino'...
    remote: Counting objects: 53558, done.
    remote: Compressing objects: 100% (617/617), done.

    I am working behind a proxy and already have set it by –

    git config --global http.proxy $http_proxy

    Any help?

    The git protocol uses a special port (9418) which, is you are working behind a proxy, is likely to be blocked.

    As for http cloning, the web page of the newcomers-tutorial repo mentions an https url, not an http one:

    git clone

    Make sure to set your https proxy as well first:

    git config --global https.proxy $http_proxy
    Git Baby is a git and github fan, let's start git clone.
