Git Question

git fetch --tags --progress times out in Jenkins, works fine on command line

I've configured Jenkins to poll a Git repository, I'm using https not ssh. The following URL is configured, and I use a username and password.

When I run the build, it stalls for 10 minutes and times out. When I copy the line where it times out and paste it to command line on the same machine as Jenkins runs (a macOS server), it works:

git fetch --tags --progress +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*

Why is it stuck for 10 minutes? I tried to use wrong credentials and that'll fail in a second. It's not a huge repo.

The log:
