    Are you behind a firewall blocking connections on port 9418? Perhaps you can give it a try with the http protocol?

    git clone https://github.com/pengwynn/linkedin.git
    
    Set proxy using git config command in the command prompt with
    the following two commands: 
        git config --global http.proxy http://username:password@host:port 
        git config --global https.proxy http://username:password@host:port
    
    In command like:
        git clone git://github.com/saasbook/hw2_rottenpotatoes.git
    Replace replace git:// with https://.
        git clone https://github.com/saasbook/hw2_rottenpotatoes.git
